REPORT OF THE SEVENTH REUNION, 1902. 



The Association of the descendants of John White met as a 
basket picnic at Wachusett Park, Westminster, Mass., August 
27, 1902. At an early hour the cousins of various degrees began 
to assemble. Registering and social greetings were in order un- 
til 11.15 a.m., when the President, John B. White of Kansas 
City, Mo., called the Association to order in the pavilion, for the 
business meeting. Vice President J. F. White of Somerville, 
Mass., offered prayer. President White briefly addressed the 
Association, thanking them for their confidence in him and the 
honor that had been bestowed upon him even though circum- 
stances had prevented his being present at the last annual re- 
union And with an eloquence born of his own zeal in the cause, 
urged that honest, faithful work be done to insure the perpetuity 
of the Association. 

The Secretary, Miss Myra L. White of Haverhill, Mass., read 
the records of the last regular session and also the action of the 
Executive Committee at its meeting in May, all of which was 
approved as read. The Treasurer submitted as a report, the 
statement that the contribution taken at the last session paid all 
bills then received, but left the treasury bare of funds. That 
later a bill for printing, etc. amounting to ... . was presented. 
That there would also be a bill for the printing of the call for this

meeting. That the only source of revenue now is the member- 
ship fee of one dollar ($1.00), which is wholly inadequate to meet 
the expenses of the Association. That there is now a deficit of 
. . . . and urged that some measures be devised at once to re- 
lieve the strain, and suggested that annual dues from each mem- 
ber of the Association, if it were only twenty-five cents would 
greatly assist, and then added: "The White's ought to be able 
to run the Association clear of debt." The President rem irked 
that annual clues would cover every need. Mr. J. H. Leavitt of 
Iowa moved that an annual due of twenty-five cents (25 cts.) be 
levied upon each member of the Association. The motion was 
duly seconded and remarks in support of the motion were made 
by Miss Myra L. White of Haverhill, Mass., George A. White of 
Franklin Park, Mass., Mr. Wilmot V. White of Cincinnati, Ohio. 
Wm. Fred White of Ashburnham, Mass., Byron A. While of 
Parkersburg, W. Va., Horace White of Richville, N. Y., and 
others. The original motion was amended by W. V. White to 
make the annual dues of gentlemen fifty cents (50 cts.) and ladies 
twenty-five cents (25 cts.) Amendment accepted by Mr. Leavitt. 
The Treasurer moved to amend, that the motion take effect im- 
mediately upon its passage. Accepted by Mr Leavitt. Mr. Ho- 
race White expressed the thought that members should not only 
pay the annual dues, but should also interest themselves to add 
new members to the Association. After much discussion the 
question was called, (the President asking for a rising vote) and 
was declared carried unanimously. 

The next order of business was the election of officers. On 
motion it was voted the chair appoint a committee of (\vc to bring 
in a list of nominations for the several officers. 

The chair appointed : 

J. H. Leavitt, of Iowa. 

W. V. White, of Ohio. 

Myra L. White, of Massachusetts. 

II. A. Knight, of Massachusetts. 

Horace White, of New York. 

The committee retired and during their absence the Treasurer 
was exceedingly busy gathering in the annual dues.

The report was accepted and adopted by a unanimous vote. 

In motion it was voted to meet next year at Lancaster. In 
motion it was voted to adjourn and the President declared the 
business meeting of the reunion of 1902 adjourned. 

Those bringing baskets then gathered in groups at the conven- 
ient tables scattered about the Park ; while those from a distance 
enjoyed the bountiful dinner provided by Mr. A. L. Harrington 
of the Summit House, Mt. Wachusett. 

The afternoon was spent in examining the first and second 
volumes of the family genealogy, making new and renewing old* 
acquaintances. Many of those present improved the opportunity 
to visit Redemption Rock on the opposite side of Lake Wachu- 
sett, where in 1676, John White's daughter Mary, Mrs. Joseph 
Rowlandson, was redeemed from the Indians by the General 
Court of Boston, Mr. John Hoar of Concord being the ambassa- 
dor. Some years since Senator George F. Hoar of Worcester, 
purchased the rock and had the following inscription placed 
upon it : 

" Upon this rock, May 2nd, 1676, was made the agreement for 
the ransom of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson of Lancaster between the 
Indians and John Hoar of Concord. King Philip was with the 
Indians, but refused his consent."

He has since presented it to his nephew John Hoar of Con- 
cord, namesake of their first ancestor. Short but interesting

poor health, he was sent to Dr. Thomas Jewett of Rindge, N.H., 
to be treated ; it was here while under the doctor's care that he 
first conceived the idea of studying medicine. After a course of 
treatment, which greatly benefited his health, he began the study 
of medicine under the care of Dr. Jewett, with whom he remained 
until he had acquired a thorough knowledge of the same, when he 
returned to his native town and began practice which he followed 
until his death.

was engaged to a young lady who was spending a week 
or two there. Mr. Emory left Boston on Saturday 
evening and intended to return on Monday. Sunday 
afternoon at 3 o'clock he went into the water and ven- 
tured out so far, either his strength failed or the 
undertow drew him in, possibly both. The beach at 
the time was crowded with people, but few realized he 
was drowning. He made no outcry but finally a 
boat was shoved off with one man in it, who threw a 
rope to the young man, which was washed away from 
his grasp, and he sank never to rise again. His body 
was recovered in forty minutes and the next day 
arrived in Fitchburg, where it was interred. Just one 
month to a day preceding his death he attended the 
funeral of his nephew, Henry D. Yerxa, Jr. At the 
time of his death he was employed by his brother-in- 
law in the store of Cobb, Bates & Yerxa.

DEATHS. 

Rev. Eldad Holmes Rowlandson 8 (4854), Vol. I, p. 414, died at 
his home in Brooklyn, N. Y., Aug. 15, 1900, aged 74 years. He 
was a clergyman in the Methodist Church, but his health failing 
in early life, he was unable to attend to the duties of a pastor, 
but was ever a prominent worker in Faith Mission, with which 
he had been identified for many years ; he retained his love for 
that organization to the last in a marked manner. Mr. Rowland- 
son was a worker and organizer in temperance circles, established 
the first order of the Cadets of Temperance and also became 
prominent in the Sons of Temperance and Good Templars. 

He was teller in the First National Bank of Brooklyn for 
twenty-six years and later bookkeeper of the Preston Fertilizer 
Co. of Blissville, and although his life was a busy one, even when 
sickness had impaired his strength ; yet he ever had an eye to 
see, and a willing heart and hand to help those in need of his 
assistance. He was eminently a pure and true Christian gentle- 
man and only those who best knew and loved him could ade- 
quately mourn his loss, for they alone could measure his worth. 



Dr. Charles Kendall Adams 8 (10003), Vol. II, p. 86, died July 
29, 1902, at Redlands, Cal., where he had gone for his health. 
Dr. Adams had been in poor health for several years. While 
president of the University of Wisconsin he was granted a long- 
leave of absence, going to Europe, where he seemed to recuper- 
ate. A few months after returning to his work at the university 
he resigned and went to California. 

Professor Adams long held high rank as an educator. He was 
born in Derby, Vt., Jan. 4, 1835, and received his preliminary ed- 
ucation in the common schools and academy of Derby. In 1856, 



28 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

he removed to Iowa with his parents and began the study of 
Greek and Latin at Denmark Academy. The following year he 
was admitted to the University of Michigan, and during his four 
years of college life was almost exclusively dependent upon his 
own efforts to secure the money for his education and support. 
During the third and fourth years he was assistant librarian of 
the university and in charge of one of the lower classes. In 
1864, he was appointed instructor in Latin and history, and in 
1885, became president of Cornell University. Under his man- 
agement Cornell forged to the front among the great colleges of 
America. In January, 1893, he accepted the presidency of the 
University of Wisconsin. He was the author of "Democracy 
and Monarchy in France," Manual of Historical Literature" and 
other successful books, and received the degree of LL.D. from 
the University of Chicago and from Harvard. 



Mrs. Betsey Bertha (Lee-Brigham) White, third wife of Tarbel 
H. White 7 (7407), Vol. I, p. 630. She died at the home of her 
daughter, Mrs. W. E. Blanchard, in Lynn, Mass., Aug. 20, 1902. 
Mrs. W r hite was born in West Boylston, Mass., Dec. 15, 1822, 
daughter of Benjamin and Eunice (Lesure) Lee. On March 30, 
1842, she was married to Stephen B. Brigham of West Boylston, 
who died June 6, 1856, and she married second, Nov. 10, 1861, 
Tarbel H. White of West Boylston, who died Dec. 29, 1867. 
She left two daughters by her first marriage, Mrs. Eunice Kitch- 
ener of Oakland, Cal. and Mrs. W. E. Blanchard of Lynn. 



Died in Bloomington, 111., May 14, 1902, Dr. John Lane 
White 7 (13637), p. 362, Vol. II. He graduated at the Harvard 
Medical School in the class of 1854, and during the last year of 
his professional studies he was house physician at the Massachu- 
setts General hospital. In 1870, he took up his residence in 
Bloomington, and has since resided there. He served two terms 
in the lower house of the Illinois legislature, and was vice-presi- 
dent of the Third National bank of Bloomington. He had been 
Grand Commander of the Knights Templar of Illinois, and was 
one of the most prominent Masons of the state For thirty 
years he was surgeon for the Chicago & Alton and Illinois Central 
railroads, and had occupied numerous other positions of respon- 
sibility. A widow and two children survive him.

Henry Knox Baker 7 (15458) Vol. II, p. 551. Judge Baker died 
June 28, 1902 at his home in Hallowell, Me., aged ninety-five. 
Judge Baker was born at Canaan, now Skowhegan, Dec. 2, 1806. 
At fourteen he went to Hallowell, to learn the printer's trade. 
Before Mr. Baker was twenty-one years old he had been for two 
years employed as editor of the Hallowell Gazette. When he 
came of age the Gazette was discontinued, and he became editor 
of the American Advocate. At the same time he entered the 
law office of John Otis as assistant. 

He continued his connection with the Advocate for several 
years. Later the Advocate and Free Press were united, retain- 
ing the name of the latter paper, and he was associated with 
R. D. Rice in the management. In the meantime he had been 
prosecuting his law studies, and not finding the printing business 
especially remunerative he sold his interest in the Free Press and 
in 1840 was admitted to the bar. 

In 1842 and 1844 Mr. Baker was elected to the legislature from 
Hallowell. In 1844 he was placed on the judiciary committee 
with A. P. Morrill and other able men. In 1844, when Mr. 
Baker was reelected to the legislature, he was made chief com- 
missioner of education in the house. 

In 1855, Mr. Baker was appointed judge of probate by Gov. 
A. P. Morrill. The same year the law was changed and the office 
made elective. This office he held and faithfully administered 
for twenty-five years, during which time he revised the whole 
probate laws. He was especially noted for his liberality in the 
matter of widows' allowances. 

He was interested in every movement to benefit either the city 
or the state. Hallowell was made a city in 1852, and he was a 
member of the city government in some capacity during eighteen 
years, after which he declined further service. He audited the 
accounts for town and city twenty-seven years without pay. 

In 1844, he became a member of the Methodist church in Hal- 
lowell, where he was a class leader and teacher of a Bible class 
for more than forty years. Though leading a very busy life he 
found time for extensive reading and contributed much to the 
press both in poetry and prose. In 1879, he made his first visit 
to Europe, joining a Tourjee party for that purpose, and in 1883, 
he made a second tour with his grandson, R. H. Rice, making a 
more extended tour of Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales. 



30 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

When about ninety-two years of age, he had the misfortune to 
break his hip, which confined him to the house; but previous to 
that time his figure was seen daily on the street and he attended 
to his duties as treasurer of the Hallowell Savings Bank. In all 
the varied duties of a busy life he was able, faithful and true, 
caring more for the good of those around him than for the accum- 
ulation of wealth and those only who knew him well could appre- 
ciate his many virtues and will mourn the ending of a long and 
useful life. 

Mrs. Almira Frances (Rand) Leavitt 8 (4301), Vol. I, p. 377, wife 
of John F. Leavitt and daughter of Sherburne W. and Laura S. 
[White 7 (4231)] Rand of Exeter, N. H.; died at her home in 
Portsmouth, N. H., August 2, 1902, aged nearly 64 years. 
Though a frail child she was the only one of nine children who 
lived beyond the age of twenty-one She tenderly cared for her 
parents in their declining years ; and had lived to see four of her 
six children grow to maturity, and had enjoyed for a brief time 
her three grandchildren, the children of her only surviving son, 
Frank S. Leavitt. All who knew her felt that she was a woman 
of most estimable character, of broad mind and most ready sym- 
pathies, a consistent Christian. While she seldom had strength 
or time to do much outside of her family, to whom she was most 
devoted, she was always intelligently interested in what was going 
on in the world and especially in the work of the church, she 
gave of her means and sympathy whenever possible. She united 
with the Congregational Church in Exeter, when young, taking 
a letter from there to the Methodist Church in Portsmouth 
after her marriage, where she had been a member for thirty- 
five years. She was also a member of the Ladies' Aid and 
Foreign Mission Societies, of the Woman Relief Corp and of 
the Auxiliary of Y. M. C. A. She was always strongly and loy- 
ally attached to her relatives, no member of the White Family 
was more interested in its reunions, although she was able to at- 
tend but one of them, she with her daughter Martha attending 
the reunion in Haverhill in 1900. 

To her husband and children the memory of her high ideals, 
her teachings and her example will always be an inspiration to 
the best living. 

" She being dead, yet speaketh."

of Gardner S. Gilman, died in Lowell, Mass., September 25, 
1902. She was born in Moultonborough, N. H., Dec. 16, 1849 ;

White 7 (4229). Her marriage to Mr. Gilman took place in Ips- 
wich, Mass., May 16, 1868. The most of their married life was

Church. 

Mrs. Gilman had been an invalid for many years previous to 
her death yet she bore bravely all her sufferings, having a care of 
her home and taking a great interest in all her loved ones. 
When her strength would not permit of other work, she did 
beautiful needlework which she delighted to give away and which 
will be treasured by those who loved her while here, and miss her 
sadly now she is gone. 

Besides her husband she left one son Harold Woodbury Gil- 
man of Lowell, and one daughter Gracie Irene, wife of Walter B, 
Hall of Pontiac, R. I,, also one grandson Richard Gilman Hall,

The above were children of Josiah,*(l 53) p. 68, Vol. I, and De- 
borah (House) White. He is buried at Rockingham, Vt. and on 
his tombstone it gives the number of his children, grandchildren 
and great grandchildren. As I am compiling a genealogy of the 
family, I would be very glad to hear from any of these families.

MRS. LUCY (CARTER) CUSHING. 

Taken on her 92d Birthday. 



White Family Quarterly. 



VOLUME I. April, 1903. NUMBER II. 



'The Lord is good: a stronghold in the day of trouble.' 



MRS. LUCY (CARTER) CUSHINQ. 

MRS. LUCY (Carter) dishing 7 (9333) Vol. II, p. 45, d. in 
Vernon, Vt., Mar. 14, 1902, aged 92 years; b. in Vernon, Newfane 
Hill, Sept. 22, 1809. Mrs. Cushing was well born and had an in- 
grained inheritance of thrift and energetic industry. She was a 
woman who had a settled conviction for doing the right as she saw 
it and was very modest, though possessing firmness and strength 
of character. This is not intended as a eulogy, for at best we all 
are imperfect, but as a just remembrance of one whose long and 
active life was spent to help and cheer those around her; for she 
was truly a remarkable woman in every sense of the word and re- 
tained her mental faculties even in her advanced age, and seemed 
so bright and interesting that people enjoyed meeting and talking 
with her, as she remembered so much of the past. She often 
had expressed a wish to be at rest and join those who had gone 
before; she was a sincere Christian and was prepared for the 
joys that await the redeemed in the other and brighter world. 
She was very fond of flowers and the beauty of her garden 
showed with what loving care they were tended and she was ever 
ready to share them with a neighbor. Mrs. Cushing was the 
second daughter of Capt. Chandler and Lucy (Kenney) Carter; 
grand-daughter of Elias and Deborah (White) Carter; married 
Sept. 23, 1829, Warren Cushing of Newfane, Vt., where their 
married life was spent on a farm until the death of her husband 
in 1872; at this time Mrs. Cushing moved to the village where 
she had cared for herself in her own little home until a short 



37 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

time before her death, when she went to Vernon to visit her son; 
she contracted pneumonia and lived but a few days. Her three 
children survive her, Mrs Joel Page of Groton, Mass., Warren 
C. Cushing of Vernon and Baxter C. dishing of Newfanc; also 
three grandchildren, Miss Ethel and Mr. Carl Cushing, children 
of Warren and Edward Page of Clinton, Mass., besides her 
youngest sister Mrs. Eudosia (Carter) Case of Lansing, Mich., 
now nearly eighty-five years of age. Mrs. Cushing was a mem- 
ber of the Congregational church and Woman's Christian 
Temperance Union and felt to the last a lively interest in the 
affairs of the day. 



Mrs. ELIZA M. (Tuthill), wife of Baxter C. Cushing 8 (9498), 
vol II., p. 63, d. at her home in Newfane, Vt., May 2, 1902. 
She was born in Townsend, Vt., Nov. 21, 1847; she was educated 
at Leland and Gray seminary and taught school several years 
before her marriage, Aug. 30, 1876, being Mr. Cushing's second 
wife. This death coming so soon after the death of his mother 
seemed very hard to bear. 



MRS. LUCY Candace (Burnap) Frost 8 (9494), vol II., p. 62, 
wife of James Burnap Frost of Brattleboro, Vt., being born upon 
the farm where he now lives and where Mrs. Frost died May 29, 
1902; she was born in Newfane, Vt., Feb. 24, 1834, daughter of 
Deacon Asa and Ellen E. (Carter) Burnap; granddaughter 
of Capt. Chandler and Lucy (Kenney) Carter; m. Mar. 29, 1857. 
She was a kind and affectionate wife and mother, devoting her- 
self to her family and had taught them the beauty of holiness. 
Her sweet influence has been appreciated, she has not lived in 
vain, and they will miss her more and more as the days go by. 
The following lines were found by her son among his mother's 
papers. 

' ' One by one we cross the river 

One by one we're ferried o'er, 
One by one the crowns are given 

On the bright and golden shore 
Youth and childhood oft are passing 

O'er the dark and rolling tide, 
And the white-robed angel boat-man 
Bears them o'e r the swelling tide. 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 38 

One by one we come to Jesus, 

As we hear His gentle voice 
One by one His vineyard enter 

There to labor and rejoice. 
One by one sweet flowers we gather 

In the glorious work of love, 
And the white-robed angel boatman 

Bears them to the realms above." 



DR. E. EDWIN Spencer (husband of Annie E. C. White 7 
(15854), vol. II., p. 543) died at his home in Cambridge, Mass., 
Jan. 19, 1903; Dr. Spencer was born in North Kingston, R. I., 
Eeb. 4, 1833, son of Esek and Maria Spencer and descended 
from good farmer stock. He worked on the farm while attend- 
ing school at East Greenwich academy. From there he went to 
the Eclectic Medical College of Cincinnati, Ohio, from which 
he graduated with high honors in 1856. While in Ohio, he 
worked in the office of Prof. Robert Safford Newton. Upon 
graduating, he went to Winchendon, Mass., in the office of Dr. 
Robert Walker Geddes and while there graduated from the 
Worcester Medical College in 1859. In 1860, refusing an offer 
to become one of the faculty of the Cincinnati college, he began 
to practise in Templeton, Mass. On Aug. 31, 1871, he married 
Miss Annie E. C. White of Ashburnham, who died Jan. 25, 
1901. In 1873, Dr. Spencer settled in Cambridge and resided 
there continuously until the time of his death. He was made 
city physician and held the office for some years. In 1891, was 
appointed to the board of health of which he was elected chair- 
man in 1893. The many-sided activity of the man was made 
evident by the large number of societies in which he took a prom- 
inent part. He was a charter member of the Massachusetts 
Eclectic Medical society, of which he was a former president, and 
at the time of his death, the treasurer; this office he had held for 
fifteen years. He was a member of the Boston District Medical 
Association, of which he had been president; of the National 
Eclectic Medical Society; of the Massachusetts State Association 
of Boards of Health; and a former president of the Art Circle, of 
which he was chairman of the literature section at the time of his 
death. He was also one of the pension examiners of Massachu- 
setts. Another side of Dr. Spencer's character less generally 



39 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

known, but worthy of the greatest praise, was his unfailing char- 
ity. Many are the poor families which have been treated by him 
and from whom he refused to take any recompense for his ser- 
vices. He leaves a daughter, Miss Edna Lawrence Spencer, and a 
sister, Mrs. Alice A. Geddes. 

DR. JAMES I. Scollard, husband of Ellen R. White 7 (13638), 
vol. II., p. 363, died at his home in Clinton, N. Y., Feb. 20, 1903. 
He was born in Springfield, N. Y., Mar. 30, 1824, son of William 
R. Scollard. He moved with his parents to Manlius, N. Y., and 
when but a young man, became interested in medicine and studied 
in the office of Dr. Numf of that village. He attended the medi- 
cal college at Albany, N. Y., where he received his diploma. In 
1849, he settled in Clinton and became associated with Dr. George 
Bissell, then a well known and prominent physician, whose prac- 
tice he bought a few years later. Dr. Scollard was a successful 
physician and his practice extended over a great territory, being 
often called a great distance for consultation. Dr. Scollard was a 
man of large financial interests; by close attention to business 
and hard work, together with strict economic methods and 
honest dealings, he accumulated a large amount of property, 
both real and personal. He was a member of Clinton lodge, F. 
and A. M. Dr. Scollard was twice married, marrying (2) Apr. 
4, 1865, Ellen Richards, dau. of Dr. John and Lucy Baron 
(Howe) White, b. in Westminster, Mass., Feb. 14, 1835. He 
leaves besides a wife, one son, Clinton Scollard, b. in Clinton, 
Sept. 18, 1860, the poet and novelist; he is a graduate of Ham- 
ilton College and was at one time professor of literature in that 
college; he married July 3, 1890, Georgia Brown of Jackson, 
Mich.; they have one daughter, Elizabeth Scollard. b. Oct. 4, 
1899; they reside in Clinton. 



JOHN Brooks Hastings 7 (11480), vol. II., p. 201, d. in Dar- 
ien, Wis., June 12, 1902, at the age of eighty-six years. He 
was born in Pembroke, Genesee County, N. Y., Nov. 20, 1815, 
being the youngest of fourteen children, son of Solomon and 
Lucinda (White) Hastings. His parents were married and lived 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 40 

in Charlemont, Mass., and most, and we thought all of their child- 
ren were born there, though we knew that they moved to Genesee 
County before the death of his father in 1828. He was one of 
the oldest settlers of Darien, going there from New York in 1843, 
and one year later purchased of Alden Stone, the farm of one 
hundred and forty acres which he owned at the time of his death, 
and where he lived until 1899, when failing health compelled 
him to give up active labor. In early life he combined teaching 
with farming for several years, then served as the town superin- 
tendent for three years and filled other positions of trust. Mr. 
Hastings married Nov. 12, 1846, Miss Maria Reed, who was b. 
in Pembroke, N. Y., Nov. 21, 1818 and who preceded him to the 
better life Sept. 30, 1882. To them five children were born, one 
dying in infancy and four are left to mourn their loss, Frank of 
Omaha, Neb., L. Edward, Kate and Octavus of Darien. His 
only daughter has lived at home to care for and comfort him in 
his declining years.

REV. JOHN Peirce, 8 (66) b. in Lunenburg, Mass., Mar. 18,

in a short time to Lancaster, Mass., where he remained until 
twenty-one years of age, when he went to Boston upon the advice 
of Rev. Thomas Whittemore, began to pursue the study of the 
English language, preparatory to a study for the ministry. He 
entered the academy and in 1836 he preached his first sermon in 
his native town to the astonishment and gratification of all who 
heard him. In 1837 he preached in Hardwick, Mass., and Dana

FIRST PARISH CHURCH, LANCASTER, MASS. 



White Family Quarterly. 

VOLUME I. July, 1903. NUMBER III. 

"The Lord is good: a stronghold in the day of trouble." 

1653. 1903. 

All roads led to Lancaster June thirtieth. I travelled with the 
throng, each claiming citizenship in greater Lancaster. The 
grand old town was as bright as a June morning could make it, 
and this morning it had taken on additional brilliancy by the lav- 
ish display of the "Red, White and Blue," in almost every con- 
ceivable form. The magnificent Elms that make the streets 
such beautiful promenades, seemed to hold themselves proudly 
erect. The "Big Elm" that has bidden defiance to time and 
tempest, seemed to deport itself with even more grace and dig- 
nity than was its wont. The old church that could tell us so 
many tales, conld the pulpit, the pew and the walls speak, opened 
its arms at the appointed hour to receive the vast multitude. 

A silence that could be felt fell upon that immense throng as 
the venerable Pastor, who for more than half a century has taught 
the people, by precept and practice, of the love of God and 
brotherhood of man, rose to speak words of welcome. And as 
the grand old organ pealed forth notes of zvelcome, of gratitude, 
of praise and of hope, the warm, throbbing life of that great 
audience was touched. 

The orator of the day delivered a splendid oration ; splendid 
under any other circumstances, but, to me at least, disappointing 
in that he sought to cover so much of God's great earth. Why 
couldn't the honorable gentleman given us a little more Lancaster, 
and a little less of the wide, wide world?

Then the chief marshal formed the lines and they marched to 
the banquet-tent, twenty-five hundred strong, where they all sat 
down at one great table. Such an hour Lancaster had never seen. 

The Governor of the Commonwealth; men who have received 
high honors in civil and political life; the clergyman; the pro- 
fessional man; the old soldier; all had come at Lancaster's bidding. 

This was our first visit to Lancaster, and we could not spare 
the time for the dinner and the speeches in the great tent. So 
we went to the Inn, and "mine host" served us with a charming 
dinner, and the hour was very profitably spent, for we were with 
our oivn people. We saw many familiar faces from the "Associa- 
tion of the Descendants of John White of Lancaster." Mr. John 
B. White of Kansas City, the honored president of the associa- 
tion, was there; Mr. George S. Houghton of Reading, Mass., the 
first vice president, and his wife; the secretary and historian, Miss 
Myra L. White of Haverhill, Mass.; Mr. and Mrs. Herbert II. 
White of Hartford, Conn.; Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Houghton 
of Baltimore, Md.; Air. Gilman B. Howe and Mrs. Sarah J. B. 
Carpenter of Northboro, Mass., and many others from Leomin- 
ster, Clinton and the surrounding towns. We used all the time 
there was to use in our effort to "see what our fathers saw." 
The old Homestead on the "Neck." Our feet actually treading 
the very places where the feet of our ancestors must have been. 
Mr. Herbert White adjusted his camera and "took us all in", 
with the house that now stands on the old homestead, (if I didn't 
hoodoo the whole thing — I have good luck at that). Later we 
sought out the "lone pine tree" that stands as a grim sentry, ever 
guarding the spot where occurred the terrible tragedy of the 
Rowlandson Garrison House in 1676. The site of the first meet- 
ing house when Rev. Joseph Rowlandson ministered to the people. 
The old cemetery, with its ancient headstones that mark the 
resting places of Lancaster's good and great of centuries long 
gone. After some search we found the old, old cemetery, where 
repose the dead of the early days. Is it here that John and his 
wife Joane, and Josiah of the second generation and some of his 
family, were laid at rest? Who can tell? History is silent. Had 
our fathers known how succeeding: generations would search for 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 70 

proofs of the past, many things that are very dim or wholly unseen 
would they have writ in letters large and clear. 

The hour was getting late and we must say good-bye to Lan- 
caster, beautiful, beautiful old Lancaster.

WILLIAM Johnson, 1 b. in Canterbury, Kent county, Eng- 
land, 1602; m. Elizabeth Story in 1630. He was in Charlestown, 
Mass., as early as 1634. By trade he was a brick -maker, and be- 
longed to the class of settlers that had the means of providing a 
home for themselves, and meeting the charges incident to a new 
plantation. Like the other settlers of Charlestown who had 
families, he was assigned an homestead of two acres. This was 
situated upon the main street. He also received, at the same 
time, an allotment of ten acres in the "Great Corn Field." He 
had a share in the division of Maiden lands in 1638, and, in ad- 
dition, in 1658, received as his proportionate share of the "Mys- 
tick side land," 27 acres of woodland and 4 1/2 acres of Common 
land. He also had three rights in the "new commons." Though 
not in public office, his successful management of his affairs, 
throughout the trying period of building up a new town, shows 
him to have been a man of energy and method in business, and 
his characteristic handwriting and style of composition show him 
to have possessed a good education. William and wife Elizabeth 
were admitted to the church in Charlestown, in 1635. He was 
made freeman in March, 1635. His will is dated Dec. 7, 1677. 
His wife Elizabeth d. about 1686. Children:

JONATHAN Johnson 2 (5), b. in Charlestown, Mass., Aug. 14, 
1641, was one of the petitioners for the town of Marlboro, Mass , 
and moved there in 1662. He m. Oct. 14, 1663, Mary, dau. of 
Richard and Anne Newton of Marlboro, b. in 1644. This was 
the first marriage recorded in Marlboro. Jonathan was the first 
blacksmith in the town. In those days the blacksmith's trade 
was considered the highest of mechanical arts. Almost anybody 
could use the saw, auger and shave, and half frame a house or 
barn by the "try rule" but only a skilled workman could weld 
and temper iron and steel. And as most kitchen utensils as well 
as the farming and other tools were, in whole or in part, hand 
wrought, the blacksmith was an essential to every household, and 
was honored accordingly. Hence in most of the early towns a 
house lot and all its accruing rights and privileges was set apart 
for a blacksmith. The only other office to which such a gift was 
made was the minister. And it is a fact worthy of notice that when 
the house lots in Marlboro were assigned to the proprietors, Nov. 
26, 1660, the lots of the minister and blacksmith were of equal size, 
that is thirty acres. His lot was one of the most eligible in the 
village, being located directly south of the Old Common. Being 
thus central, his shop was the general resort for news and the 
general transaction of business. Public notices were usually re- 
quired to be posted here. The "smith" preceded the "tavern" 
by many years. In his later years he was employed as the school- 
master of the town. In December, 1699, he taught in his dwell- 
ing house before a schoolhouse was erected in town in 1700. He 
appears to have been greatly prosperous in his business, as shown 
by his ability to purchase house lots, and other land whenever 
they came into market. His handwriting, samples of which exist 
in deeds and other documents, indicate a man of marked individ- 
uality and force of character He wrote his will but a few years 
before his death, at the age of seventy, yet the bold, clear cut let- 
ters would do credit to a practical penman. He was well educa- 
ted for the times. He was one of the selectmen of Marlboro, in 
1711, and d. Apr. 21, 1712, aged 71. His wife Mary d. Dec 
28. 1728, aged 84. Children:

DEATHS. 



Mrs Susan Clark (Jones) Stannus 8 (4125), Vol. I, p. 353, widow 
of Samuel Stannus of Tacoma, Wash., and dau. of Joab and 
Lydia (White) Jones, b. in Marietta, Ohio, Apr. 2, IS IS, and 
great grand-daughter of Major Haffield White, who went as com- 
missary and conductor of the first detachment of the "Ohio 
Company," which left Dauvers, Mass., in Decemher, 1787, for 
Washington county, Ohio (then the great North-west). 

Mrs. Stannus was among the hardy pioneers who crossed the 
plains in 1853, locating in Benton county, Oregon. She was a 
woman of broad education and retained her love of books through 
all her later years. She moved with her husband, in 1885, to 
Tacoma, where he died Oct. 18, 1891; she died in Tacoma, at the 
home of her youngest daughter, Mrs. Emma S. Crowe, May 24, 
1903. She leaves one son and three daughters, Leander Stannus 
of Moscow, Idaho; Mrs. Ella G. Litchfield of Watsonville, Cak; 
Mrs. Rosa Hamlin of Watsonville; and Mrs. Crowe. 

Although well advanced in years, she was very active, and but 
recently returned from a visit to her children in California. She 
will be greatly missed, not only by her children but by a large 
circle of friends, but they can truly say that "their loss is her 
gain." 

Joseph Smith, husband of Nancy S. Brawn 8 (4271), Vol. I, p. 
372, died in Moultonboro, N. H., May 14, 1903. He was son of 
James and Lydia (Perkins) Smith, born in Moltonboro, Oct. 4, 
1822. His father dying in his childhood, he lived with his uncle, 
Joseph Smith of Moultonboro, where he was a farmer. Mrs. 
Nancy Smith died Mar. 16, 1886, and he married (2) Martha A. 
Lovejoy, who survives him. He leaves one son, Andrew J. 
Smith of Moultonboro, and two grandchildren. 

Guy E. Carter 10 (9113), Vol. II, p. 21, born in Leominster, 
Mass., June 14, 18S7, son of Everett M. and Louise M. (Wheeler 1 ) 
Carter, was drowned in the lake at East Washacum, Sterling, 
Mass , July 9, 1903. He was in camp with the "Unitarian Boys' 
Club" of Leominster, of which he was a member, and had started 
with two of his companions to swim to the shore from a boat 
stationed out in the lake. Before the shore was reached, Guy's 



99 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

strength was exhausted and he sank in sight of his companions, 
and their efforts to help him were fruitless. 

Guy was a member of the Leominster High School, class of 
1904, and of the High School Cadets. He will be sadly missed 
by his young companions as well as his afflicted family.

Lines 

WRITTEN ON A GENEALOGICAL WORK. 

In eighteen hundred eighty-nine, 
I began this work of mine; 
For relatives and friends most dear, 
I visited graveyards far and near; 
While it gave me both pleasure and pain, 
Naught would induce me to do it again; 
Hoping you now are satisfied 
That in the attempt I had not died. 

Mrs. H. A. T. WHITE.

Johnson. 

1. Capt. EDWARD Johnson, the most remote ancestor, came 
from Heme Hill, a parish near Canterbury, England. He came, 
no doubt, in the fleet with Winthrop, 1630, and took oath of al- 
legiance, May 18, 1631; he was the author of the curious history 
called "Wonder Working Providences of Sion's Savior in New 
England". After living some time in Charlestown or Salem, he 
went home to bring his wife Susanna, seven children and three 
servants, and settled in Charlestown in 1637, became one of the 
founders of the church in Woburn, was representative 1643-1671 
except the year 1648, and was speaker in 1655, was town clerk 
almost thirty years and did other valuable service. His will of 
May 15, 1671, written with his own hand, names wife Susan or 
Susanna to whom he gives rents of his lands in old England and

in volume second of the Descendants of John White, page 753, 
as far as the records could be obtained at that time, and Asa is 
there called Asa, Jr., as his name was found on papers written 
in that manner, there being an older man by the name in Leo- 
minster. The ancestry of Tamar Whitcomb 5 will be found in 
volume first, page 75. "Asa Johnson, of Leominster, was a 
private in Capt. Joseph Sargent's company, Col. Josiah Whit-

J OS I AH Worcester Griswold 7 (11513), page 208, Vol. II, 
"Descendants of John White", b. in Buckland, Mass, Jan. 31, 
1823; died July 10, 1903, at the old homestead in Buckland, 
where he had spent his entire life of eighty years. In early life 
he relinquished his collegiate studies at the earnest solicitations 
of his father and settled upon the homestead, where he was an 
enterprising and prosperous farmer. Mr. Griswold was selectman 
a score or more of years, and served the town in the capacity of 
town clerk, chairman of school committee, and justice of the 
peace. He showed marked sagacity in his official administration 
during the Civil war. He represented the district in the conven- 
tion held in Boston in 1853 to revise the constitution of the state, 
and served in the Legislature the following year. His judgment 
was widely sought and much relied upon. He was one of the 
founders and a staunch supporter of the Methodist church, and 
took an active part in all questions of public interest. He was 
the son of Hon. Joseph and Lovisa (White) 6 Griswold, being the 
youngest of fourteen children, but one of whom died in childhood. 
He married first, Jan. 1, 1846, Ann Eliza Davis of Buckland, who 
died July 22, 1859; he married second, Oct., 19, 1872, Eliza A. 
Townsley of Springfield, Mass., who survives him with one 
daughter, Josephine Griswold. Of the four children by his first 
wife, two are now living, Emerson J. Griswold of Buckland, and 
Mariette, wife of Rev. Wallace Nutting of Providence, R. I.

LOVICY Dodge 8 (7685), page 647, Vol. I, born in Gouver- 
neur, N. Y., July 15, 1826; she died at the home of her nephew, 
John C. F. Bilow, at the Bilow homestead in Richville, N. Y., 
where much of her life had been spent with her sister. She 
united with the Methodist church in Richville in 1861, and has 
ever been a faithful and consistent member. She was the seventh 
child of Lyman and Betsey (White) 7 Dodge. 



Mrs. CALISTA (Dodge 8 ) Bilow (7682), page 651, Vol. I, born 
in Richville, N. Y., May 5, 1817; died Oct. 24, 1902, at the resi- 
dence of her son, John C. F. Bilow, who lives on the family 
homestead, where she was taken as a bride Dec. 19, 1842, by 
Michael Bilow, who was born in Winchester, Canada, June 1, 
1817. He purchased his farm in Richville in 1841, and there 
they spent nearly forty-four years, enjoying the labor and bless- 
ings as well as the hardships of a pioneer life. Mr. Bilow died 
Oct. 19, 1886, leaving seven children, Mrs Aurilla Liscum, Mrs. 
Margaret B. Price, Mrs. Lucelia D. Bresee, M. D. Lafayette 
Bilow, Mrs. Asenath C. Judge, Mrs. Harriet E. Foster and John 
C. F. Bilow, who has remained upon the homestead. She united 
with the Methodist church when thirteen years of age, and was 
ever a faithful and active member, highly respected by all. She 
will be greatly missed not only by her children and grandchil- 
dren, but also by a large circle of friends.

of the Daughters of John White be placed upon the "Markers." 
The vote was called and the motion declared carried. 

Charles S. Houghton of Leominster, moved that a "Committee 
be appointed, consisting of one from each town or city, to look 
after the interests of the Association, to urge upon those who are 
eligible, that they secure membership in the Association, and to 
aid the secretary in every way possible in her work." Several 
spoke upon the question, advocating its adoption. The vote was 
called and the motion declared carried. The President said that 
in view of the wide acquaintance of the secretary that he would 
consult with her regarding the personal of the committee. After 
consultation the Chair appointed: Fanny P. Gates, Leominster, 
Miss Hattie Burpee, Stirling, Mass., Miss Edith Harrington, 
Westminster, Mass., John F. White, Somerville, Miss Ethel 
Wilder, Clinton, Mass., and other names to be added from time 
to time. 

George A. White of Franklin Park, spoke in the interest of the 
"White Family Quarterly," urging that every member of the 
"White Family" should be a subscriber, and assist in every way 
to make the publication a success. Miss Myra L. White of Hav- 
erhill, Mass., spoke at some length, giving the reason for the pub- 
lication of the "Quarterly," how many branches of the family do 
not appear in their proper place in the "Genealogy" because at 
the time of the printing of the book she had not discovered them, 
and that the Quarterly was the channel through which she should 
continue to give the results of her genealogical research. And

appealing to the family far and wide to assist her in this work by 
subscribing for the Quarterly, as well as the Genealogy. 

George A. White moved that "The Quarterly be the official 
organ of the Association; that the constitution be printed therein, 
and that all official notices be issued through that channel." Mo- 
tion declared carried. Voted: The Association take a recess until 
one P.M. for dinner. 

Called to order at 1.30 P.M. President White favored the As- 
sociation with an able and interesting address upon early histori- 
cal events, touching upon many things that concerned the family 
alone and also upon its connection by marriage and inter-marriage 
with the prominent and influential families of the times. The ad- 
dress was most cordially received. 

Mrs. Haley of South Lee, N.H., beautifully rendered a solo, 
much to the gratification of the hearers. 

A paper on the "Rowlandson Garrison House" and its capture 
by the Indians February 10, 1676; was read by John F. White of 
Somerville, and favorably received. 

Mrs. Haley then read an original poem in which the White 
lost none of the honors of the past. 

Mrs. Weston kindly favored the Association in the reading of 
an original paper, that added to the pleasure of the occasion. 

The President then called upon Mr. Horace White of Rich- 
ville, for a recitation. And our aged friend, with all the vigor 
and energy of his youthful days, rendered in the most charming 
manner possible, "How can we lift them up." 

The President announced as the next order of business the 
election of officers and appointed as a committee on nomination 
Miss Myra L. White, Haverhill, Mrs. Salem Wilder, Clinton, 
Mrs. Margaret F. Mathews, Ft. Worth, Texas. While the com- 
mittee were arranging the list of officers John Wilder Fairbank 
was called to the front and addressed the Association, much to 
its interest and gratification. 

The committee on nomination reported unamimously for the 
re-election of the present board. Mr. Horace White moved the

President White, in a few well chosen words, expressed his 
appreciation of the honor bestowed upon him and the confidence 
that the Association had in him. 

The next annual meeting. Several locations were suggested, 
but an informal vote showed that it was the sense of the meeting

REUNION OF THE WHITE FAHILY, 1903. 

We, scions of an ancient tree, 

Meet here on old and sacred ground; 

Members of that noble family, 
We gather proudly around. 

There courses through our veins today 
"Blue blood" of noble dames and sires, 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

Unstained we trust by world's affray; 
God grant not by its many mires. 

Tis said "Blood tells;" if this be true, 
'Twere fitly spoken now, I ween — 

For manly faces here I view, 
And ladies too, of fairer mien. 

I, from a branch of Maine's best name, 
Greet cousins of the same good stock, 

Who lingered nearer to the plane — 

Nearer the far famed "Plymouth Rock." 

SILAS — of roving mind, we think, 
Engaged in war with French, we hear; 

Saw the grand scenery as he passed, 
And said, "A home I'll build me here." 

By the Kennebec he stopped to rest; 

The busy waters passed him by; 
Each mountain towering above the rest, 

Lifted its rugged head on high. 

Now Bingham, where he settled down, 
Has given the world some noble men; 

Today a brilliant, thrifty town, 

Is greatly changed, we trust, since then. 

He, the first White to "Parlin pond," 

Gave it in sport his family name; 
A younger son of "Lennox's Earls" 
Was never sorry that he came. 

He later married Lydia Wood, 

Of good old "Puritan" stock and name, 
Her mother was a "White" so good — 

And some were known perchance to fame. 

They tell us though the years are gone 
So much about the "Parlin Pride" 
That when the "Parlin Pride" had flown— 
The Parlin very soon had died. 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. ? 

Silas of "Revolutionary" fame, 

Rears Abel up to man's estate. 
Captain in eighteen hundred twelve, 

Sought for himself a fitting mate. 

To Lydia Goodrich he is wed, 

Whose people came— in thirty-two— 
A quiet life in Watertown led, 

Of English blood so blue. 

One daughter of this union 

Christened Elizabeth by name, 
Married a New Hampshire man, 

Kindly and good, of honest fame. 

His people came from England 

When this, our land was new, 
Fought in the Colonial wars, 

And Revolution too. 

With pardonable pride we trace the lines 

On every side to sources best, 
And feel a mighty trust is ours 

To keep unstained —a name so blest. 

Down all these lines of good descent 

Has this same old pride run deep, 
Pure as when from the spring it went, 

And pure on its way shall keep. 

Nor generations dare to mar, 

Or tarnish this good, unsullied name— 

Nor join inferior streams to this; 

Remember the fount from whence it came. 

When we, who gather here today, 

Pass on to future joys in store, 
May those who fill our places then 
Respect the names we bore. 

Mrs. SARA M. HALEY. 



10 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

ADDRESS BY JOHN F. WHITE, 
at the "White Reunion" Lancaster, Hass., Sept. 2, 1903. 

Mr. President and cousins of varied degree: 

On this beautiful day, that represents to us the 250th anniver- 
sary of the settlement of our pioneer ancestor in this grand old 
town, it is meet that we put in the back ground as much as we 
may, the fact that in this 250 years the family has been scattered 
to the four winds. That thay have filled with credit to themselves 
and to their friends, many honorable positions. In the legislative 
halls; in the Pulpit; on the Bench; at the Bar; in all the lines of Pro- 
fessional and Merchantile life as well as all the minor walks of 
life, we find the "descendants of John White of Lancaster" in 
perhaps greater numbers than of any other man that ever lived in 
this old town. 

It is our aim today to go far back in the history of our family, 
and take up some incident in that history, that we may study in 
its many bearings with, we trust, some advantage to all. 

There are many such incidents which pertain to the history of 
Lancaster alone. And one of these we have chosen. One which 
is of interest to all, and possibly of more interest to some, for you 
may be direct descendants of the participators of that eventful 
day. 

Sixteen hundred and seventy six was a bitter year for Lancaster. 
Sorrow, desolation, death, and almost annihilation as a town, was 
the draught the people were forced to drink to its very dregs. 
The year opened upon them, the darkest they had known in the 
history of the Plantation. Clouds of uncertainty were low about 
them. Many were the rumors of the incursions and depredations 
of the savage Red Men of the forest. Tragic tales .were told of 
death among the settlers from bullet, knife or tomahawk. The 
Governor and his Councillors at Boston were unaccountably slow 
in providing adequate protection for the Planter and his family 
that were scattered up and down these beautiful valleys and over 
these majestic hills. Fear, in so much as a brave man or woman 
knows fear, was in every heart. They did not fear to meet the 
savage in an open contest and a fair fight. But the red man did 
not fight that way. It was an ambush, a stroke in the back, or a 
sudden rush at midnight. 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. II 

It was known that Philip had not only stirred up his own peo- 
ple, but also the Wampangoas and the Nipmucks, and in that 
feverish condition of brooding over the real or fancied wrongs of 
the white man, an attack might be expected at any time. 

The situation was so serious that the people had alreany built 
for themselves places of defence that they called Garrison houses. 
That is, here and there throughout the Plantation would be a house 
built especially strong, and with varied means of defense; and to 
which the people in that immediate vicinity would fly for refuge 
in case of attack from the savage foe. 

There were five of these Garrisons in Lancaster, and it is of 
one of them, the Rowlandson Garrison House, that we will speak 
today. To describe its location, it is not necessary for me to take 
your time. For if there is one of you that has not visited it in 
the past, you certainly have sought out that historic spot today. 
The wind still sighs and moans through the branches of the "lone 
Pine Tree" that markes its site, as though mourning for the tragedy 
of the past. Of its architectural style, there is very little to be 
learned from the historical page. It is passing strange that there 
is so little. We are almost persuaded that there is a significance 
in this very fact. We read of other Garrison Houses and Block 
Houses and get some idea of their means of defense. But little, 
very, very little of this. Marvin says: " This Garrison was guard- 
ed only on the front (which probably faced south) and the two 
sides, with no flankers to cover the rear and no port-holes in that 
direction." Another writer says; "there was one flanker and an- 
other in process of erection." And Hubbard the historian says: 
"The fortification was on the back side of the building but covered 
up with fire wood." And he also mentions a "leanter." It 
would seem that this description as given by Hubbard was the 
more reasonable in view of the after facts. 

The morning of Feb. 10, 1676 finds the inhabitants of Lancas- 
ter hastily leaving their homes with the few valuables that they 
could take with them, and seeking refuge in the Garrison Houses, 
for the alarm of attack had gone forth before the rising of the sun. 
Most writers agree that there were forty-two persons, old and 
young in the Minister's garrison that morning, although Mrs, 
Rowlandson in her book mentions only thirty-seven, 



12 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

It is not necessary for me to tell you the story of that fearful 
two hours, of the tremendous anxiety, of the torturing suspense, 
of the dreadful agony of mind, that is greater than that of the 
body, to say nothing of the suffering of the wounded and the 
dying, from the time of the invasion of the garrison by the In- 
dians, until all was over and the heroic endeavors of that little 
band had become history. Mrs. Rowlandson tells of the bullets 
that fell like hail, of this one being wounded, then another, and then 
a third, of that one falling dead, of the building being fired and 
one going out quenched it, of its being quickly fired again, of the 
murtherous heathen that struck down every christian that they 
could reach, and of the final force of the flames that compelled 
them to choose death by fire or a possible worse than death at the 
hands of the savages. Of the forty-two that sought shelter in the 
Minister's garrison, one escaped to tell the tale of defeat, death 
and capture, fourteen were known to have met death there, 
twenty were known to have been carried away captive. Of the 
fate of the other seven — only the Indians could tell. 

The "Annals of Lancaster" give these names as those in the 
Minister's garrison that day: 

Killed in the Rowlandson Garrison. 
Ensign John Divoll. 
Josiah Divoll, son of John, aged 7. 
Daniels Gains. 
Abraham Joslin, aged 26. 
John Mac Loud. 

Thomas Rowlandson, nephew of the minister, aged 19. 
John Kettle, aged 36. 
John Kettle, Jr. 

Joseph Kettle, son of John, aged 10. 
Mrs. Elizabeth Kerley, wife of Lieut. Henry; daughter of 

John White. 
William Kerley, son of Lieut. Henry, aged 17. 
Joseph Kerley, do. aged 7. 

Mrs. Priscilla, Roper, wife of Ephraim. 
Priscilla, child of Ephraim, aged 3. 

Carried captive from Rowlandson Garrison. 
Mrs. Mary Rowlandson, wife of the minister, daughter of John 
White, ransomed. 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 13 

Mary Rowlandson, daughter of the minister, aged 10, escaped. 
Sarah Rowlandson, do., aged 6, wounded and died, 

Feb. 18. 

Joseph Rowlandson, son of the minister, aged 13, ransomed. 
Mrs. Hannah Divoll, wife of Ensign John, daughter of John 

White, allowed to come home. 
John Divoll, son of Ensign John, aged 12, died captive. 
William Divoll, do., aged 4, ransomed. 

Hannah Divoll, daughter of Ensign John, aged 9, allowed to 

come home. 
Mrs. Ann Joslin, wife of Abraham, killed in captivity. 
Beatrix Joslin, daughter of Abraham, do. 

Joseph Joslin, brother of Abraham, aged 16. 
Henry Kerley, son of Lieut. Henry, aged 18. 
Hannah Kerley, daughter of Lieut. Henry, aged 13. 
Mary Kerley, do., aged 10, escaped. 

Martha Kerley, daughter of Lieut. Henry, aged 4. 
Elizabeth Kerley, age unknown, escaped. 
Mrs. Elizabeth Kettle, wife of John, ransomed. 
Sarah Kettle, daughter of John, aged 14, escaped. 
Jonathan Kettle, son of John, aged 5. 
A child Kettle, daughter of John. 

Ephraim Roper, alone escaped during the assault. 

While these heroic men went to death, and these women and 
children to captivity, it was only after most desperate resistance. 
We cannot for a moment think that the men, women and children 
in that garrison did not make all the defense possible under the 
conditions that surrounded them. The women of New England, 
in that day and generation were of heroic mould, (and have ever 
been). The Hannah Dustins were not confined to Haverhill, but 
were all through the New England plantations where the question 
of life, honor, and her children's saftey was concerned. We are 
pursuaded that the women and even the younger children were 
no hindrence in the defence of that garrison. Mrs. Rowlandson 
tells of "the blood that run down to their heels". But it was 
a hopeless fight. Hopeless from almost the very invasion of the 
garrison. Hopeless! Why? Because these men were less 



14 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

brave? • Because these women were less heroic? Because these 
children were more fearful? No. But rather because they did 
not have a fighting chance. Have you thought that no other 
garrison in Lancaster was captured? Have you thought that of 
the 55 that were killed or captured in Lancaster that dreadful 
day, 41 of them met their fate at the Rowlandson garrison? It 
is true that the garrison of Cyprian Stevens received help from 
Marlboro, but that does not account for the fact that the others 
repelled the foe. Is not the reason embodied in the conditions 
that prevented a successfnl defense? We see on history's page 
that Joseph Rowlandson made ample provision to protect his 
family from the severity of the winter's cold. But that same his- 
tory fails altogether to give us a reason why the fire-wood should 
be piled up over the fortifications, as Hubbard says it was. We 
have not a satisfactory reason to offer why the defenses of the 
Rowlandson garrison were so meagre. It is true that this was in 
the midst of the winter, at the coldest of New England's cold 
winter, and probably with quite a body of snow upon the ground, 
as Mrs. Rowlandson makes several allusions to the snow in her 
"removes." But this did not warrant any lack of vigilance on 
the part of the settlers, for they knew full well of the uneasiness 
that prevailed among the Red Men to the west of them; and that 
the families of the natives that lived in their very midst could not 
be trusted as they had been heretofore for it was believed that 
they were all under the domination and control of Philip, and had 
been for some time. In the previous August there had been an 
attack from the savages, and eight of the Lancaster people had 
fallen in that attack. Following this there was a comparative 
quiet for a time. But the towns people realized that it was only 
" the calm before the storm," else why were Mr. Rowlandson 
and Lieut. Kerley absent at that very time trying to impress upon 
the Colonial authorities at Boston, the pressing need of better 
protection for Lancaster. Had Mr. Rowlandson and Lieut. Ker- 
ley been in the garrison that fatal morn it would have made no 
difference beyond the fact that two more good men would have 
gone to death . 

There is no doubt but that Joseph Rowlandson was a good 
preacher and an excellent pastor; and that in all matters pertain- 
ing to a spiritual warfare that he was very successful in all of his 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 15 

labors. But in a temporal warfare where the weapons used were 
the rifle, the knife, the tomahawk and the firebrand, and it was 
necessary to defend against them, some how he did not measure 
up to the needs of the hour. 

Would Capt. John White, the noted Indian fighter, who figured 
so conspicuously in Lancaster's history in the next generation, 
and understood so thoroughly what was needed for defense against 
the treacherous savage, think you that he would have permitted 
great piles of fire wood to have covered the fortifications of his 
garrison? No. He appreciated all too keenly the necessity of 
instant readiness to meet the savage foe. It was true that Mr. 
Rowlandson made excellent provision for his family, but that 
same provision was a contributing factor to the loss of all that he 
possessed. 

We can readily understand, though there may be a few among 
us who have an actual knowledge of what war is, that the very 
location of the Rowlandson garrison did not make it readily de- 
fensible. And the wily foe was quick to see the weak points, 
both in structure and defense, and as quick to act. It was not 
long after the invasion of the garrison that the Indians dis- 
covered that the defense on the back side of the building was very 
weak or none at all, and that continued attack upon that side 
failed to show defense. What is more natural than for us to con- 
clude that, continuing the attack upon the three sides of the 
building where they were meeting a vigorous defense, such a de- 
fense as to make it impracticable to rush the building, batter 
down the doors, and so overcome by sheer force of numbers, that 
by fire alone could they drive them forth. 

They had learned that it was death to the redskin that got 
within reach of the guns of the garrison, for the bodies of many 
of their number were fast growing cold on the snow covered 
ground. They also knew that what they would do they must do 
quickly, for we cannot presume that they were ignorant of the 
rapid approach of Capt. Wads worth and his intrepid force of forty 
determined men. They also knew those forty guns would make 
fearful havoc in their ranks, the moment that they could get with- 
in gun shot. 

So the chief determined to deal a crushing blow if possible. 



16 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

Quickly calling by his swift runners, reinforcements from the at- 
tacking force on the other garrisons, he bends all his energies to 
fire the building and so drive out the gallant defenders that he 
had failed to dislodge in any other way. And here was where 
Joseph Rowlandson's planning or lack of planning, was fatal to 
his own. Those great piles of fire wood that were piled so high 
that they covered all the port holes on that side of the building, 
furnished the enemy with just the munitions of war they needed. 

The "leanter" mentioned by Hubbard, must have fired even 
more readily than the building itself or the firewood piled against 
it. Quickly that little band of defenders realized that their great- 
est danger was not from the bullets of the foe. The crackling 
of the flames as they rapidly ate into the frail "leanter" and the 
piles of dry firewood, was heard even above the fearful din of at- 
tack at the right and left and in front of them. Those stout 
hearts quailed. For an instant the ruddy cheeks paled. But the 
reaction followed even faster, and that brave man, that history 
has failed entirely to identify, rushed forth from the garrison, and 
rapidly dashed the blazing brands hither and thither until the 
building was free from danger, and then quickly regained his 
place within the walls. How much we would like to know that 
man's name. But there is no possible way for identification. The 
name is lost, but the action itself stands out upon the annals of 
time as grandly heroic as that of any of the heroes of the past. 
Even the savage, crazed as he was for the white man's blood, was 
amazed and bewildered at such a display of heroism, and for the 
moment not a shot was fired. But this respite from immediate 
danger was brief. Quickly the red man was the savage again, 
and the fire was crackling, and flashing, and blazing, fiercer than 
it had before. Breaking through wall and roof; the smoke was 
stifling and the heat was intense. What a fearful dilemma for 
those brave women. All had been done that could be done. 
Every means of defense had been exhausted. On the one side, 
the garrison house that had sheltered them, a seething furnace; 
on the other — a fate that might be more dreadful than fire. Un- 
der these awful circumstances they must choose, and choose they 
did. Would you have the story in all its heart rending, blood 
curdling and soul harrowing detail? Then read Mrs. Rowland- 
son's book that for more than two hundred years has kept hold 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 17 

upon popular favor, and the more than a score of editions testify 
the appreciation of its eloquence and pathos. 

It is with grateful hearts that we gather from history's page 
that Mrs. Rowlandson and some of the other women who were 
captured that day were most wonderfully preserved from the fate 
that so often was brutally dealt to the female captive by the red- 
skin foe. 

We have given you the names of those who were restored to 
their friends by ransom and of those who perished in captivity, 
as well as those of whom nothing is known beyond the fact that 
they were taken away captive, — our imagination must supply the 
rest. 

Are we grateful enough to the "Giver of all good" that our lot 
in life is cast in such pleasant places ?

20. Cerdic or Cherdic. In 494-5, a band of Saxon adventur- 
ers led by alderman Cerdic, landed in Southampton Water, west 
of the realm of Aella (494) and after a hard fight with the Britons, 
won the valleys of the Itchen and the Test with the old Roman 
town of Venta (Winchester). In 519, Cedric took the title of 
king like his neighbors of Kent and Sussex and his realm became 
known as the land of the Saxons (Wessex). Cerdic had wife 
Wihtgar. 

21. Cynric or Kenric of Chenric, only son of Wihtgar, wife 
of Cerdic, 534-560. Cerdic, associating his son Cynric in the 
dignity, became the King of the territory which he gained, and 
the house of Cerdic finally became the royal house of all the 
island. 

22. Ceawlin or Ceolin or Ceaulin, whose kingdom gradually 
grew into the kingdom of England. He reined 560-590. He had 
son Cutha, who died in the battle before the death of his father.

mund, sub-king of Kent. 

31. Ecgbert or Echberht, first king of all England; m. Red- 
burga, dau. of Bristric, King of West Saxon (8), 3rd lineage. It 
is said that in the Saxon annals that he descended from Woden, 
the root of the Saxon families, and by his conquest which he 
made in Britain he may be considered as one of the first founders of 
the English monarchy; the kings of England descended from 
him in the male line to the illustrious Edward the Confessor, and 
in the female line to the illustrious Queen Victoria, who sat upon 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 19 

the throne of England sixty-four years. 

32. Ethelwulf, King of England, m. Osburga, dan. of Oslac, 
the royal cup-bearer; he was of Jutish descent from Whitgar, 
King of Wight, one of the two brothers to whom King Cerdic 
(their uncle) gave the Isle of Wight.

DANIEL Harrington 7 (5598), Vol. I, page 480, died at his 
home in Westminster, Mass., May 3, 1903. He was born in 
Westminster, Jan. 26, 1813; married July 1834, Nancy, 6 daughter 
of Dea. James and Thankful (Patch) White 5 (612), born in West- 
minster, Aug. 18, 1815; she died in Westminster, Dec. 3, 1893. 
Mr. Harrington was a farmer in South Westminster, where he 
had the respect and esteem of all. A small family gathering was 
held at his home on his ninetieth birthday and he enjoyed it very 
much, for his mind was wonderfully clear for a man of his years 
and remained so until his last sickness which was very brief. He 
was always interested in all that concerned each member of the 
family and the children and grandchildren will not forget the 
words of counsel and encouragement received from him in the 
many years he was spared to them, although they will miss his 
cheery word and pleasant smile. 



Mrs. Melinda (Hutt 9 ) Carter (17824), Vol. II, page 717, died at 
her home in Leominster, Mass., Sept. 27, 1903. She was born 
at Chipman's Brook, Nova Scotia, Apr. 26, 1857; married in 
Fitchburg, Mass., July 1, 1880, Rufus B., son of Luke Wheelock 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 31 

and Abigail F. (Priest) Carter, born in Leominster, Feb. 10, 1847; 
they lived in Leominster, where he died Nov. 26, 1901, leaving 
five children. Death has again entered that home and taken from 
those dear children the loving care and counsel of a devoted 
mother, and though they have the heartfelt sympathy of all in 
their deep bereavement, yet there is no one but the Father of the 
fatherless who can comfort and support them in this trying hour. 
May they learn to look to him for the help they so much need. 



Mrs. ADA J. (Denig) White, wife of William F. White 8 
(9925), Vol. II, page 86, of Chicago, 111., died in Boston, Mass.,

FREDERICK L. White 8 (4337), Vol. I. page 380, died in 
Bethlehem, N. H., July 30, 1903, aged 55 years. He was born 
in Boston, Mass., April 11, 1848; went when a young man with 
his father to Littleton, N. H., where they entered into business 
together. In 1868 they opened a branch store in Bethlehem, and 
soon after his father moved there, and the store has been continued 
ever since under the firm name of C. G. White & Son. His 
father died in Bethlehem Feb. 4, 1885, and Mr. White besides 
continuing the large department store, was the owner of three 
other stores, including a fine Casino, the White Mountain sou- 
venir store, and the club house at the golf links. Mr. White was 
for years trustee and a leading member of the Methodist church, 
also president of the Bethlehem Golf Association, and of the 
Bethlehem board of trade. He was a member of the Golden 
Cross commandary at Lancaster, N. H. and of the Odd Fellow's 
lodge in Boston. 

He married Sept. 18, 1871, Lizzie K., dau. of Henry Bursley 
of Boston, who survives him; they had one daughter, Gertrude 
L., born in Boston Dec. 28, 1872; she died in Bethlehem, Jan. 13, 
1889. 

Mr. White was a man of the highest character and of genial 
nature which had won him thousands of friends among the innu- 
merable summer visitors that have thronged Bethlehem for the 



32 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

last quarter of a century. His sudden death cast a gloom over 
the entire community, visitors uniting with his relatives and 
town's people in mourning his loss. Always in the front in all 
movements for improvement, few men had done more than Mr. 
White for the upbuilding of the town, or will be more truly 
mourned.

WHITING GATES 



White Family Quarterly. 



VOLUME II. April, 1904. NUMBER II. 



"The Lord is good: a stronghold in the day of trouble." 

WHITING GATES 

WHITING Gates 8 (21940), Vol. Ill; died at his home in Leo- 
minster, Mass., Feb. 29, 1904. He was born in Leominster, 
Feb. 27, 1815, son of Jonas and Martha (Divoll) Gates, and 
great grandson of Mary Sawyer 5 (743), p. 78, and John Divoll 5 
(859), p. 85, Vol. I, "Descendants of John White." He married 
Jan. 5, 1842, Lncy Ann, daughter of Salmon and Abigail 
(Carter) Richardson, born in Leominster, Jan. 1, 1816; she died 
Oct. 13, 1879. 

Mr. Gates when nineteen years old attended school in Way- 
land, Mass , and later in Newton, Mass., where he worked his 
way with two other boys. "If there came a stormy Saturday 
school was in session, and the holiday then came on some pleas- 
ant week day when the boys would be able to do some work." 
He also attended Uncle Tom Frye's Quaker school two winters. 
He taught school in Leominster and Lunenburg; then went to 
Worcester, Mass., where he was clerk and deputy sheriff until 
1842, when he returned to Leominster, and settled, with his 
widowed mother, on the farm since known as the "Whiting 
Gates farm." On the estate was a saw and grist-mill, which he 
managed in connection with the farm, he was also the first to in- 
troduce the manufacture of buttons, the first being made in a 
room fitted up in his mill. When nearly seventy-five years of 
age, Mr. Gates left the farm and built the house where he after- 
ward resided. 

Mr. Gates was the oldest native born member of the Unitarian 



34 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

parish, and yet no one was more interested in the building of the 
new church. 

Mr. Gates never grew old except in years, but was in sympa- 
thy with the youngest, and ever ready to add to their enjoyment. 
His pleasant smile and kind words will be sadly missed at the 
reunions of our association, in which he has ever shown so deep 
an interest. He was one of the oldest descendants of John 
White of Lancaster, Mass., and we also find among his ancestors 
the following names of the first settlers of Lancaster and Leo- 
minster — John Prescott, Thomas Sawyer, John Whitcomb, 
Thomas Wilder, John Divoll, Gamaliel Beaman, John Houghton, 
Samuel Carter, John Moore, Jacob Farrar, John Smith, Edward 
Phelps, Reubin Gates and Hooker Osgood. 

Mr. Gates leaves besides a large circle of friends, six children 
to mourn his loss, Jonas W. Gates of Leominster, Abbie E. 
Gates, who had cared for her father, Susan R.Gates of Hingham, 
Mass., Mrs. Martha E. Edwards, Leominster, Hattie L. P. and 
Fannie P. Gates who also shared their father's home. 



GILBERT Silas Morton, husband of Helen Lilley 8 (10431), 
p. 131, Vol. II, died at his home in Shenandoah, Iowa, April 10, 
1902; born near Cleveland, Ohio, Sept. 9, 1846, son of Daniel 
and Sarah (Bryant) Morton. They were married in Chillicothe, 
Kan , where she was teaching, Nov. 27, 1873. He lived for a 
short time in Kewanee, 111., then settled in Iowa where he was 
a prosperous farmer; but later retiring, settled in Shenandoah. 

Mr. Morton was one of the wealthiest men in the community 
in which he lived, and had always been a hard worker. He was 
honest in all his dealings and kind to those who needed his help, 
his tenants have naught but good words to say of him. As evi- 
dence of his kindness of heart, during the year of drought, when 
his tenants were not able to make any money on his farms and 
raised very little grain, he charged them only a very small rent, 
thus dividing with them the hardships which they were called to 
endure. 

Although Mr. Morton will be sadly missed among his large 
circle of friends and acquaintances yet it is in his home the 
loss will be most keenly felt. He leaves, besides his wife one 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 35 

daughter Stella, wife of Dr. H. H. Richardson of Shenandoah. 



Miss MARY Gill Clark 7 (12748), p. 294, Vol. II, died at her 
home in North Charlestown, N. H., Feb 6, 1904, after a short 
illness, aged 91 years. Miss Clark was born in Princeton, Mass., 
Oct. 20, 1812, daughter of Aaron and Elizabeth (Brooks 6 ) Clark. 
She lived in the house with her brother Aaron, Jr., who died Dec. 
25, 1900, and his widow and children will greatly miss "Aunt 
Mary's" loving companionship; for she was one who through her 
long life ever had a tender care for others, and even in her last 
sickness did not forget to inquire many times in a day for her 
sister-in-law who was ill at the time. 



Dea. BENJAMIN Franklin Cram 8 (4284), p. 374, Vol. I, died 
at his home in Kingston, N. H., Jan. 1, 1904. wanting but two 
days of 83 years. Dea. Cram was born in Hampton Falls, N.H., 
Jan. 3, 1821, son of Benjamin and Rebecca Fletcher (White 7 ) 
Cram. He married Nov. 4, 1846, Lizzie S, daughter of Caleb, 
Jr. and Sally (Tuck) Smith, born in Brentwood, N.H., Dec. 9, 
1824. 

Dea. Cram was a farmer in Hampton Falls for several years 
but later moved to Kingston where he was deacon and treasurer 
in the Congregational church for more than twenty-five years, 
he was collector of taxes in the town eleven years and held other 
offices in town and church. 

His loss will be deeply felt in the community, for he truly can 
be called "The noblest work of God," an honest man. He 
leaves besides his wife, five children to mourn his loss, for 
although they had been married more than 57 years, his death 
was the first to break the family circle. His children are — Julia 
L., wife of Woodbury Collins of Danville, N.H., F. Herbert 
Cram of New Haven, Conn., Sarah E., wife of George E. Bailey, 
of Kingston,. Milan C. Cram of Haverhill, Mass , and Charlotte 
L. Cram living at the homestead with her mother. 



Mrs. ABBIE Frances (Spalding) White, wife of Charles 
Hodsdon White 8 (4287), p. 375, Vol. I, died at her home in Wil- 
ton, N. H., Jan. 3, 1904; born in Wilton, Aug. 28, 1834, 



36 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

daughter of Charles and Lydia Jones (Burns) Spalding. They 
were married Nov. 27, 1856, and lived for a short time inMilford, 
N.H., and then settled in Wilton, where her kindly acts and 
amiable disposition has endeared her to a large circle of friends. 
Yet it is in her home that her loving care and tenderness will be 
most sadly missed, for she was indeed a devoted wife and mother. 

Mrs. White left, besides her husband, four children — Mrs. 
Emma L. wife of Willard N. Griffin of Gloucester, Mass., Carrol 
S. White of Manchester, N. H., Mrs. Jennie F. widow of Las 
Casas Barnes of Wilton, who is now living with her father, and 
Charles W. White of Nashua, N.H., as well as eight grand 
children who will miss the willing hands of dear grandma. She 
also left one brother Charles C. Spalding and two sisters Mrs. 
Lucy K. wife of Gardner Blanchard and Mrs. Mary R. widow of 
Asa Blanchard all living in Wilton. 



Mrs. CHARLOTTE Amelia (Burt 7 ) West (14743), p. 460, 
Vol. II, died in Jackson, Mich., Nov. 13, 1902; born in West- 
moreland, N.H., Jan. 20, 1829, daughter of Willard and Martha 
(Wood 6 ) Burt; she married Feb. 24, 1855, John A. West of Wor- 
cester, Mass., who died Sept. 16, 1863, in Worcester, where she 
remained a few years and then settled in Jackson, among her 
cousins who were her nearest living relatives. She was buried in 
"Rural Cemetery" Worcester, beside her husband. 



Mrs. HANNAH A. (Houseman) Wood, wife of George 
Wood 7 (14716), p. 452, Vol. II, died in Sandstone, Mich., May 
19, 1903; born in Orleans Co., N.Y., Sept. 11, 1825, daughter of 
Jacob and Polly (Loudon) Houseman. Her maternal ancestors 
were of Holland and her paternal grandfather George Houseman, 
emigrated to America when but nineteen years old, in time to 
serve in the Revolutionary war. 

She married Dec. 28, 1852, George Wood, 7 who survives her, 
also two children — Jotham J. Wood and Mrs. Ella S. wife of 
Fred M. Dwelley of Jackson, Mich.

ster, Mass., Nov. 23, 1867; died in Worcester, Mass., Mar. 2, 
1904. 



IRA Lucian White 7 (10370), p. 121, Vol. II, died in Milwaukee, 
Wis. Apr. 2, 1904. Mr. White was born in West Brome, 
Province of Quebec, May 4, 1837, son of William F. and Char- 
lotte Smith (Perrigo) White. His parents were both born in the 
state of Vermont, but lived for a short time in Quebec, moving 
to Galena, 111., very soon after the birth of his son and later to 
Viroqua, Wis., where he began his life work with his father, car- 
rying the United States mail. After coming of age the gold 
craze carried him alone to California, where in 1860, he was 
riding a pony express every day. A year later he was driving a 
coach and six around mountain defiles, with revolvers in his 
pockets and bandits around him. He returned to Green Bay, 
Wis , where he continued as mail carrier several years, then set- 
tled in Milwaukee and for twelve years he carried all the mail 
between the post office, the sub-stations and the depots in Mil- 
waukee, his sons taking his contract in the summer of 1903. 

Mr. White married June 26, 1871, Adelaide Stevens born in 
Knox, Me., Mar. 21, 1848. Mrs. White was of Oshkosh, Wis., 
at time of her marriage, a sister of E. E. Stevens, a former 
mayor. Besides his wife, he leaves three children, William O., 
Arthur H. and Cora B. also four sisters, Mrs. Ellen M. Burrell 
of Hutchinson, Kan., Mrs. Mary A. Mead, Mondovi, Wash.; 
Mrs. Almeria C. Nichols, Spearville, Kas.; and Mrs. Eucia M. 
White, his twin sister who also lives in Hutchinson.

WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

It was voted at the Reunion, held in Lancaster, Mass., Sept- 
ember 2, 1903, that "The Quarterly be the official organ of the 
Association; that the constitution be printed therein, and that all 
official notices be issued through that channel." 

Now, this is not the only object of the Quarterly, for it is 
needed vry much, in which to print the branches which could 
not be found when the first and second volumes were printed, 
but which lightly belonged in them ; and for which there is not 
room in the third volume yet in press. Also to keep up the cur- 
rent records of the the family. In the Quarterly for 1903, were 
printed, besides corrections and short additions, ancestors and 
descendants of Jonathan and Sarah (Dodge, 5 303, p. 50, Vol. I) 
Peirce, 261 members in regular line. John P. Howe 7 (2295, p. 
193. Vol. I), 61 descendants. Ancestry of Jonathan Johnson, 
who married Mary Kerley 3 (24, p. 27, Vol. I), with 365 of their 
descendants. Asa Johnson's ancestry and 172 descendants. 

In the second volume 1904, is being printed the descendants 
of Maj Josiah Carter, who married Tabitha, dau. of James 
Howe (128, p. 60, Vol. I (as well as his ancestry). Also the 
Royal Ancestry of John Prescott from whom are descended all 
of the Sawyers and many of the Whites, Wilders, Fairbanks and 
Whitcombs of Lancaster. 

Through the two volumes are English Records copied by Rev. 
John Holding of Stotfold, Baldock, Herts, Eng., for Mr. J. B. 
White.

KING ALFRED THE GREAT. 



White Family Quarterly. 

VOLUME II. July, 1904. NUMBER III. 

"The Lord is good: a stronghold in the day of trouble." 

ROYAL ANCESTRY OF JOHN PRESCOTT, 
Founder of Lancaster, Mass. 

First Lineage. 

(Continued from page 19.) 

33. King Alfred the Great, born in Wantage, Berkshire, Eng- 
land, 849; m. in 869, Alswitha, dau. of Ethelred, a Mercian earl- 
derman. He was crowned in Winchester in 871. He has left us 
his own conception of what a king should be. "Power is never a 
good, unless he be good that has it; so it is the good of the man, not 
of the power. If power be goodness, therefore it is that no man 
by his dominion can come to the virtues and to merit; but by his 
virtues and merit he comes to dominion and thus no man is better 
for his power; but if he be good, it is from his virtues that he is 
good. From his virtues he becomes worthy of power, if he be 

worthy of it By wisdom you may come to power, though 

you should not desire the power. You need not be solicitous 
about power, nor strive after it. If you be wise and good, it will 
follow you, though you should not wish it." 

"Ah! Wise One, thou knowest that greed and the possession 
of this earthly power never were pleasing to me, nor did I ever 
greatly desire this earthly kingdom — save that I desired tools 
and materials to do the work that it was commanded me to do. 
This was that I might guide and wield wisely the authority com- 
mitted to me. Why! thou knowest that no man may understand 



66 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY 

any craft or wield any power, unless he have tools and materials. 
Every craft has its proper tools. But the tools that a king needs 
to rule are these; to have his land fully peopled; to have priest- 
men, and soldiermen, and workmen. Yea thou knowest that 
without these tools no king can put forth his capacity to rule. . . 
It was for this I desired materials to govern with, that my ability 
to rule might not be forgotten and hidden away. For every fac- 
ulty and authority is apt to grow obsolete and ignored, if it be 
without wisdom; and that which is clone in unwisdom can never 
be reckoned as skill. This will I say — that I have sought to live 
worthily the while I lived, and after my life to leave to the men 
that come after me a remembering of me in good works." 

Alfred fortified London 886, and carried on a defensive war 
with the Danes 894-897, which ended in the withdrawal of the 
invaders, and in which, by the aid of ships of improved model, 
the English for the first time gained a decided naval advantage 
over the vikings. His success against the Danes was due largely 
to his reform of the national fyrd or militia, by which half the 
force of each shire was always ready for military service. His 
administration was also marked by judicial and educational reform. 
He compiled a code of laws, rebuilt the schools and monasteries, and 
invited scholars to his court. He was himself a man of learning" 
and translated into Saxon the "Ecclesiastical History " of the Vener- 
able Bede, the "Epitome of the Universal History " of Paulus 
Orosius, and the "Consolations of Philosophy" by Boethius, and 
corrected a translation of the " Dialogues " of Gregory the Great. 
The popular accounts of his life abound in legends which are de- 
void of historical foundation. He died Oct. 28, 1901. 

34 Ethelfleda, oldest daughter of King Alfred the Great, 
married Ethelred, Earl of Mercia, who was sub-king of Mercia, 
he died in 912. An innovation, probably due to the energy, wis- 
dom, and courage which she was known to possess, left her the 
holder of an earldorman's authority, and she takes a place in his- 
tory as " The Lady of Mercia." She ruled her land in perfect 
accord with her brother, and furthered his plans by the erection 
of fortresses at various points. The city of Chester, which had 
been left desolate for three hundred years, became again a place 
of strength to guard the north-west. Bridgenorth, Stamford, 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY 67 

Tamworth, Warwick, Hertford, Witham (in Essex), and other 
points were fortified with works of stone ; and not only were 
Danish risings quelled, but the king and his sister made steady 
encroachments on the dominion of the Danelagh. In 917 the 
Lady took Derby, and in 918 she forced the garrison of Leices- 
ter to surrender. In 920 her death came at Tamworth. 

35. Elswiha, married Godwin, a nobleman of Wessex. 

36. Leofwine, Earl of Leicester; m. and in 1017 became 

Earl of Mercia; he died between 1024 and 1032 and his son Leo- 
fric succeeded him as Earl of Mercia. 

37. Leofric, in 1032 he succeeded his father in the earldom of 
Mercia, which was at that time of less extent than the ancient 
kingdom, for portions had been cut off to form inferior earldoms, 
and though Leofric's superiority was no doubt recognized by 
other earls, his immediate rule probably did not for many years 
after he had received his father's earldom extend beyond Cheshire, 
Staffordshire, Shropshire and the North Welsh border. 

In 1051 Leofric received a summons from the king to come to 
his help; for Godwine and his sons had taken up arms. He 
marched with a small force to Gloucester, where Edward was, 
but when he and the other earls who were on the king's side saw 
how matters stood, they sent messengers through their earldoms 
to raise all their forces. War seemed imminent, when Leofric in- 
terposed, declaring that it would be folly for Englishmen to fight 
with one another, and so lay their land open to the attack of a 
foreign enemy; for the chiefest men of the country were in the 
two armies. He advised, therefore, that both sides should give 
hostages and should keep the peace, and the quarrel should be 
decided at a future meeting of the witan; his advice was followed. 
He died in Bromley, Staffordshire, Aug. 31, 1057. 

38. Alfgar, married Alfgifu, he died in 1062?

and brother to Geoffrey, Count of Anjou and first Baron of Ken-

Lea from his estate of Lea on the river Ribble, was living in 1208

Rev. BYRON Alden 6 (16081), vol. II, p. 563, died at the home 
of his daughter, Mrs. Martha Wood, in Streator, 111., May 2, 1904. 
"Father" Alden was born in Hinesburg, Vt., Nov. 5, 1806, son 
of Rufus and Sally (White 5 ) Alden. Although he had passed his 
ninety-seventh birthday, he never lost his interest in things 
around him and was out upon the street less than a week before 
he was called home. On Sunday morning he heard the church 
bells ring and saw the bright May sunshine streaming into his 
room. "What a glorious day for the Sabbath!" he said. He 
wanted to get up to see the people go to church, but that joy was 
denied him. As the shadows began to gather with the "sunset 
and the evening star," he murmured: "My beautiful Sabbath is 
passing into eternity and I am going with it." He went out be- 
fore the dawn broke again. 

His boyhood days were spent in Hinesburg, and there, on Oct. 
29, 1827, he married Sarah Ann, dau. of Joel Peck, b. in Hines- 
burg, Jan. 15, 1805. Together they lived for fifty-four years, 
Mrs. Alden dying February 1, 1881, just five weeks after they 
settled in Streator. On each anniversary of her death for twenty- 
one years he wrote her a poem of remembrance and love. When 
a boy he became a member of the Methodist church and began to 
prepare himself for its ministry. He was licensed to preach in 
Nicholville, N. Y., admitted to trial in 1838, and ordained a min- 
ister in 1841, by Bishop Waugh of the Methodist church. His 
first assignment was the Hopkinton Charge, where he served 
three years with success. For thirty years he was a circuit rider 
and later resident preacher in northern New York, bringing 
spiritual comfort and cheer to thousands. In 1870-1 he moved 
from New York State to Illinois, settling in Woodstock, where 
for ten years he preached for the united Methodist and Presby- 
terian congregation at Greenwood, near Woodstock, then settled 
in Streator in 1881, where he supplied successively for one year 
each the churches at Gardner and Verona. Since then he had 
no regular charge, but he preached frequently for pastors in the 



92 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY 

On his ninetieth birthday Mr. Alden gave a concert of song in the 
Streator Methodist church, the selections being mainly of his own 
composition, both words and music. In the earlier years of his min- 
istry he possessed a rich tenor voice, which materially aided him 
in his evangelistic work. 

Upon the date of President McKinley's burial he was one of 
the orators assigned to deliver a patriotic address to the school 
pupils . 

At the meeting of the Central Illinois conference in 1902 he 
preached the conference sermon, speaking forty-five minutes with- 
out faltering of voice and at the finish received many compliments 
for his eloquence. "Father" Alden's last public appearance in the 
pulpit in Streator was in September, 1904, just following the 
annual conference which transferred their pastor, Rev. Mr. Bell, 
to Galesburg. He was assigned to speak upon the work of the 
church and what had been accomplished in the seven years of 
Rev. Mr. Bell's administration there, and he was as clear, con- 
secutive and forceful in thought as any of the younger ministers 
who spoke upon that occasion. 

His first presidential vote was for "Tippecanoe" Harrison in 
1840, and he never missed the opportunity to cast a ballot for the 
republican nominee — always a speaker and a worker for that 
party. 

" Father " Alden was the oldest of five children, all of whom 
passed the age of eighty years, except his youngest 
brother, Rev. Justin Thomas Alden, who died in Camden, N. Y., 
Aug. 29, 1864, aged forty-three. Of Rev. Mr. Alden's five chil- 
dren all have passed away except two daughters, Mrs. Mary F. 
Becker of Sacramento, Cal., and his youngest daughter, Mrs. 
Martha Wood, at whose home he has been cheered and cared 
for since the death of his wife. 



RICHARD T. Giffin 3 (9927), vol. II, p. 87, died in Minneapo- 
lis, Minn., May 18, 1894. Mr. Giffin was born in Sutton, Vt., 
Mar. 13, 1828; married (1) Jan. 25, 1855, Betsey Tinker, born 
May 19, 1835 ; she died and he married (2) Jane Wanbold, born 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY 93 

July 15, 1848. He removed with his father from Sutton, to Mar- 
low, N. H., where he settled on a farm. In 1866 he went west 
and was for a time engaged in farming in Lake Park, Minn., and 
later in Minneapolis. 



HENRY Giffin 8 (9929), vol. II, p. 87, died at his home in 
Keene, N. H., April 27, 1904. He was born in Sutton. Vt., 
October 29, 1832, son of David and Mary (White 7 ) Giffin; moved 
with his parents to Marlow,N.H.when eighteen years of age; he was 
employed on a farm in Marlow and vicinity, himself owning and 
carrying on a farm there for a time. He married, February 24, 
1858, Harriet S. Tinker, born in Lempster, N. H., April 18, 1839. 
Mr. Giffin remained on his farm until 1866, when he moved into 
the village, where he drove one of the late George Burnap's six 
and eight horse teams, which used to freight between Marlow and 
Keene before the days of railroads, and during that time learned 
much about work horses, of which he was a good judge. In 
1873 Mr. Giffin moved to Keene, and in 1879 engaged in the coal 
business, which he has since carried on, becoming an extensive 
dealer, and his teams have for a long time been the finest and 
best equipped in the city 

But, best of all, Mr. Giffin was the noblest work of God, an 
honest man, with a large heart and a generous disposition, and 
his kind acts will ever keep his memory fresh with those who 
knew him best. He has always shown a deep interest in the re- 
unions, and was one of the first to respond to an invitation of a 
family gathering. 

But it is in his family where he will be most keenly missed, by 
her who has walked by his side for forty-six years and his only son, 
George H., who was so closely connected with him in the busi- 
ness as well as home life, also his two little grandsons will sadly 
miss their play with grandpapa, for they were his delight as fail- 
ing health confined him to the house; besides his wife, son and 
family, he leaves a niece, Miss Hattie Whittemore, who has long 
been in his family, a brother, Mr. Charles Giffin of Keene, and 
two sisters, Mrs. George S. Goddard of Hinsdale, N. H., and 
Mrs. Menzies Hartshorn of Tully, Mass.

MRS. KEZIAH (HAMLIN) BROOKS 



White Family Quarterly. 

VOLUME II. October, 1904. NUMBER IV. 



"The Lord is good: a stronghold in the day of trouble." 

KEZIAH HAflLIN BROOKS, 1804=1904. 

WRITTEN BY HERBERT BROOKS, COLUMBUS, OHIO. 

In looking back a century, knowing that at the beginning of it, 
upon the site where Columbus now stands, there were but two 
cabins and very little cleared ground, while now dwellings and 
business houses are numbered by the thousands, you naturally 
wonder and look for the causes that led up to this wonderful 
transformation. Two ideas come into mind : What were the 
forces used to build such a beautiful city, and who were the 
builders ? 

The land was chosen as a building site because of location upon 
the banks of the Scioto River. Also because of its commanding 
view of all the country which spread north, south and west into 
a fertile valley. The land rises gradually, from the banks of the 
river eastward until the summit of what was then called Wolf 
Ridge (this name was often used by my father, David W. Brooks, 
in his conversation bearing upon the early settlement of Colum- 
bus, same having been used by his father, David Brooks) is 
reached. Virgin forest crowned the top of the ridge with its 
mighty, towering trees, and within its dense thicket, the gray 
wolf, the terror of the settler, made his lair. For this reason, and 
from the fact that the pioneers both at Franklinton and Colum- 
bus hunted these animals to destroy them as matter of self pro- 
tection, the name of Wolf Ridge was originally given to the place 
where Columbus now stands. 



98 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

One hundred and four years ago Nathaniel Hamlin and wife, 
natives of New Jersey, reached the banks of the Scioto, and re- 
solved there to build their home. He purchased the land now 
occupied by, and round about where the Hoster plant is located. 
The vicinity in after years became known as Prison Hill, 
because the original penitentiary was built thereon. Lucas 
Sullivant had surveyed and laid out Franklinton about three years 
before, but on the east side of the river his only neighbor was an 
Indian captive, John Brickell (his first cabin or hut was on the 
west bank of the Scioto, a little north of where the Olentangy 
empties into the former stream. He afterwards moved across 
the river and occupied a plot of land near where the Ohio Peni- 
tentiary now stands.) 

In 1804, Oct. 16th, the subject of this sketch, Keziah Ham- 
lin, the first white child born in the future city, saw the light of 
day. The Hamlins had but recently erected their home, and 
when Keziah was born the cabin had no doors or windows. In 
order to keep howling, prowling wolves at bay by night, the fa- 
ther closed the openings with quilts, blankets and skins which he 
fixed firmly to the ground inside with heavy logs. Out of a ma- 
ple sugar trough a cradle was improvised, and in that cradle she 
was rocked a thousand times by the happy mother who hummed 
a lullaby, alone in the mighty forest. 

In connection with the early life of Keziah, the following In- 
dian story is told in Howe's History of Ohio : — 

" At this time a tribe of Wyandot Indians were located near a 
bend in the river just below the present Harrisburg bridge. 
They were friendly to the Hamlins, and were especially fond of 
Mrs. Hamlin's freshly baked bread. On bread baking days they 
would come into the cabin, and lifting aside the curtain which 
served as a door, enter and help themselves to the contents of 
the larder without asking permission or saying a word to the oc- 
cupants. Upon leaving they would throw a haunch of vension 
or whatever game they had upon the floor as a compensation, and 
then silently take their departure. 

"One day when Mrs. Hamlin was attending to her household 
duties with nobody present save her infant daughter, who was 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 99 

calmly sleeping in her crib, several of the Indians entered the 
cabin and without saying a word deliberately took up the sleep- 
ing infant and carried her away with them to their village, leav- 
ing Mrs. Hamlin trembling with fear and anxiety for the safety 
of her child. 

As the hours passed by and the child was not returned, she 
suffered the greatest anguish and suspense, until the close of the 
day her sufferings were much relieved by the reappearance of the 
Indians bringing with them the child, which wore a beautiful pair 
of beaded moccasins upon her feet which the Indians had been 
industriously working upon all day and had felt the necessity of 
having the child with them so as to insure a perfect fit. This 
token of the appreciation of the savage race for the kindness and 
hospitality shown them by the early pioneers was preserved un- 
til a few years ago, but was unfortunately destroyed by one of 
the family then too young to appreciate their value." (Howe's 
Historical Collections of Ohio, Vol. I, page 660.) 

The conditions surrounding the early childhood of this girl 
were characteristic of the lives of all our pioneers. The every 
day struggle for life and existence, the toil and hardship sustained 
through the long dreary days of winter, the clearing of the forest, 
the building of the roads by the men, and the cares of the house- 
hold attended by the women, all of this gave strength to the body 
and clearness to the mind. It is from these families that a 
strong, and sturdy race of people have come. They have 
builded cities, and carved out a state that to day is honored 
among the union of states and a credit to the nation. 

In her father's cabin, surrounded by such comforts and pleas- 
ures as a fast growing village could afford, Keziah Hamlin grew 
to womanhood. During this time families in quest of lands and 
homes were coming in rapidily from Massachusetts, Virginia, 
Pennsylvania, and a few from Connecticut, and now Columbus 
could boast of nearly three hundred inhabitants. 

In 1817, David Brooks came to Ohio from the state of Massa- 
chusetts to seek his fortune. His family had taken root in Con- 
cord near Boston away back in 1636. His father and grand- 
father had fought in the French and Indian wars, also in the 



100 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

patriotic ranks under Washington during the war of the Revolu- 
tion. Young Brooks met and married, December 19th, 1822, 
the pioneer's daughter, then a girl of less than twenty. It was 
but a few months until David Brooks and his young wife were 
owners and kept the popular tavern, known as the " Sign of the 
White Horse," which stood where the Odd Fellows' Temple is 
now situated. 

The pair made an ideal host and hostess of the early period. 
He met his guests at the curb and his wife made them feel at 
home. Among the friends of early days who made this hostelry 
their abiding place were the Merions, Ambroses, McGowns, 
Hunters, Livingstons, Becks, Spragues, Jewetts, Goodales, and 
so on. The majority of these families were from the home 
state of Massachusetts. It was not an uncommon thing for 
families from the same states east, to form close ties of friend- 
ship and to be of the same social circle, when thus thrown 
together facing trials and hardships of the frontier, help of any 
kind being tendered in time of need and necessity. The ledger 
kept during that period by the proprietor of the White Horse 
will bravely testify to some accounts then long past clue and still 
unpaid. Nevertheless the couple prospered, and the wife was a 
constant helpmeet to her husband, and a friend to all the coun- 
try round. The first hard blow that entered in the home 
was the death of the father and husband in the year 1848, leav- 
ing a family of three sons and two daughters. 

How well the mother performed her part to keep the children 
together, to raise them, and to give them such an education as 
the times could afford, need not be mentioned here. Suffice it 
to say that a woman born in the forest, enured to dangers and 
trials attendant upon same, would not flinch from her duty, when 
brought to it face to face. 

Keziah Hamlin Brooks died in Columbus, Ohio, Feb. 4th, 1875. 
She was a woman of remarkably strong character. She was faith- 
ful and true to the many friends of her day, and during her entire 
life her faith in the Christian way of living was exemplified by 
her many acts of kindness and charity. She was buried from St. 
Paul's Episcopal church then located on the corner of Third and 
Mound streets. The services were conducted by the rector, 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 101 

Rev. R. W. Grange, who made impressive remarks concerning the 
life and history of the deceased. He spoke of her later years, which 
she devoted greatly to her church duties. She always took a 
great interest in the Pioneer Association. Quite a number of 
this association were in attendance at the services. The pall- 
bearers were all members of the early surviving families of her 
day, being J. E. St. Clair, C. P. L. Butler, N. Merion, Justin 
Morrison, John Otstot, Lincoln Kilbourne, and Wra. H. Slade. 
After the ceremony at the church, a large number of friends and 
relatives followed the hearse to Green Lawn, and there her body 
lies by the side of her husband within sight of the spot where 
she was born. 

The following letter was written by David Brooks to his wife 
Keziah from Princeton, Mass. He frequently returned there, 
though at that time the journey was long and filled with danger. 
The trip had to be made overland by horseback or horse and buck- 
board through the then almost unsettled country. 

Princeton, Mass., April 20th, 1828. 
My Dear : — 

I have arrived safe at home, and had a pleasant journey, and 
find my friends here are all well and pleased to see me. We ar- 
rived here on Wednesday last. Mr. Francis was in good spirits, 
and has gone on to his father's. I went yesterday to see Milton 
Brooks, and found him in pretty good health for him. He 
wishes to go back to the State of Ohio, but I don't think he will 
live to get back. Mrs. Boylston intends sending you a fashion- 
able bonnet and cap by me when I return. I think I shall set 
out for home about the first of May. 

Yours affectionately, 

DAVID BROOKS. 

( Original letter is possession of family, along with many others.) 

The following letter received six years after the demise of Mr. 
Brooks, was written by a young lady school teacher from Ware- 
ham, Mass., who had been employed as instructor to the children 
in the family. It was no doubt intended to console the widow, 
also to cheer her and to brighten some of the hours that must 
have been filled with sorrowful thoughts of the past. She had 



102 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

become attached to the children for she ailudes in two places to 
the son David and in another to son Henry. It is an interesting 
communication, having been written just fifty years ago. It shows 
that the young woman was perfectly capable of filling such a 
position. 

Wareham, Mass., June 22, 1854. 
Dearest Friend : — 

Although year after year has passed since last we met, they 
have not proved years of forgetfulness, and often, very often, do 
I call to mind your many acts of kindness. Often I fancy myself 
at your side, breathing into your ears tales of disappointments, of 
sorrow, and of hope — this is when memory is busy with the past. 
Often I wonder why you did not answer my last communication. 
I cannot think you have forgotten me. It must be that many 
cares is a sufficient apology, — but David — what has become of 
him ? Could he not stir memories' fount sufficient to call up 
some past times of sufficient interest to trace a few lines to an 
old friend ? Perhaps some young fair beings occupy his better 
thoughts, his better wishes. As to my wonderful self, I have 
little to say. I have seen much sickness and sorrow, at times 
have tired of life — and again life is sweet, and surely you have 
drank of sorrow to its very dregs ; but Hope, that bright star, is 
still before you, although at times its light is near extinguished. 

I am not writing to-day thinking to interest or amuse you, but 
to beg you to tell me of everything that interests you. Then 
should you see fit to answer this scrawl, I will write a long letter, 
even so long as to tire you I think. David must be a good boy, 
and Henry is there, another spared, to write and tell me. 

I am teaching a school for young men in this town. Last 
Thursday I was in Boston. I write fast for the church bell calls 
and I must go Were I to tell you Lassie Strain is an author you 
would say this scribble does her no credit. Nor does it. But, 
dear Mrs. Brooks, if I stop to write a handsome letter I should 
not write for want of time. In the last three weeks I have written 
over one hundred and fifty pages for publication, besides teaching 
all day, and in the evening I have seven young men under my 
care from seven to half past eight P. M. Nor have I one female 
pupil in my day school. I will send you a copy of some poetry 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 103 

that I wrote for Jenny Lind — that world-renowned songstress — 
if you will pardon me for not copying it. Take it as it is, and 
you are welcome. 

Most respectfully, 

L. M. STRAIN

March 14, 1639. Lived there a few years before this. Was born in 
England. Said to have come from London. Probably sailed from 
Cheshire district in which Liverpool is situated. (I believe him 
to be brother of Thomas Brooks, who was made freeman in Con- 
cord, December 7, 1636. Afterward moved to Watertown and 
owned Es't. at Medford, also brother of John Brooks, who was 
about this time one of the early settlers of New Haven, Conn.)

Journal " said of him editorially : 

" In the death of David W. Brooks Columbus has lost one of 
her representative and progressive citizens. He learned the 
printing trade in this office with General Comly and afterward 
made a success of life. He was also a valuable man in public 
affairs, notably in building the present city prison, when he was 
Police Commissioner, and in adopting a business system at the 
Central Insane Asylum, when he was its resident director. He 
was not only one who had done much for Columbus, but also for 
his State. 

Mr. Brooks was born in this city February 22, 1828, at the site 
of the Odd Fellows' Temple, where his father kept a tavern with 
the sign of the 'White Horse.' His mother was Keziah Hamlin 
and was the first white child born in Columbus. Mr. Brooks be- 
gan at the bottom of the ladder, and by energy and close attention 
to business amassed quite a fortune. He was in turn a clerk in 
the post-office, Deputy Clerk of the Supreme Court, clerk in the 
County Auditor's office, and held the office of County Clerk for 
a time by appointment of the County Commissioners. For a 
great many years he was in the grocery business with Nathaniel 
Merion and occupied the site at the southeast corner of High and 
Chapel street. He was at one time member of the Board of 
Police Commissioners by appointment, and was in great measure 
responsible for the movement which resulted in the erection of 
the present City Prison, being one of the projectors of the same,

along with DeWitt C. Jones and George F. O'Harra. He was 
one of the trustees of the Asylum for the Insane under Governor 
Bishop. The bank of which Mr. Brooks was president was or- 
ganized in 1869, though the present firm was formed at a later 
day. 

He was a Knight Templar Mason and was a member of St. 
Paul's Episcopal Church. The funeral will take place from the 
residence to-morrow afternoon." Children :

A TALE FOR THE CHILDREN. 

(I do not recall the original title of the following poem, although 
the words, which I learned some fifty years ago, were forcibly 
brought to my mind by the Indian story on p. 98. As near as I 
can recall, it was learned from a stray leaf of the Youth's Com- 
panion. — Ed. 

Away in the distant forest, 
Where men like beasts were wild, 
A white man built his cabin, 
And dwelt with his wife and child. 

The smoke of the nearest wigwam, 
Rose up just o'er the hill, 
It was hung with the skins of the panther, 
The proofs of the hunter's skill. 

'T was the home of a lonely Indian, 
With painted face and grim, 
Who boasted his scars of battle, 
A score on every limb. 

The white spoke Ta-he-yer kindly 
And offered his plow to lend, 
For he feared the stalwart savage 
And gladly would make him friend. 

One morning the white man early 
To the distant town had gone, 
Leaving his wife and daughter 
At home in the wood alone. 

Scarce peeped little Ida's bright eyes 
Through their fringes of silk, 
She had lisped her simple prayer 
And drank her basin of milk, 

When, sudden a dark, broad shadow, 
Fell in at the open door, 
Blent with the summer sunshine, 
Crossing the sanded floor. 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. Ill 

How trembled the pale-cheeked mother, 
And clasped her babe to her breast, 
But smiled Ta-he-yer good morning, 
And listened his strange request. 

He spoke with stateliest gesture, 
And made her to know his will ; 
He would take the prattling Ida 
To his home beyond the hill. 

Up to the sun he pointed, 

Now in its eastern track, 

Saying when it sank to the westward 

He would bring little Ida back. 

The mother grew even paler, 
Her heart felt deadly cold ; 
But she dare not rouse the anger 
Of the redman stern and bold. 

And kissing her precious daughter, 
She tied on her hood like snow, 
And gave to the arms of Ta-he-yer ; 
And Ida was pleased to go. 

All day with praying and weeping, 
She wandered from place to place, 
Awaiting her husband's coming 
And longing for Ida's face. 

The sun went down on the hill-top, 
The mother grew almost wild, 
When joy, she spied in the distance, 
Ta-he-yer bringing her child. 

Nearer they came, and pointing 
Her baby finger of rose, 
" Mamma," said the little one gaily, 
" See, Ida has pretty shoes." 

The thankful mother espied them, 
As hasting her child to meet, 



112 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

A pair of moccasins bright wrought, 
Fitting the tiny feet. 

Ida patted the dark scarred bosom, 

As it had a thousand charms, 

And murmuring, " Good Uncle Ta-he-yer, 

She sprang from his yielding arms. 

And many a day thereafter, 
When Ida had older grown, 
Ta-he-yer sat in his wigwam 
On the hillside not alone. 

For he taught the child to dye baskets, 
With osier and goklenrod, 
She taught him to read his Bible, 
And pray to the Great True God.

whirled his horse, bent low in the saddle, and in the 
act received a terrible wound — similar to that re-

time excruciating agony. Here, at his urgent re- 
quest, a surgical operation was performed, which he 
well knew meant death ; the ball was removed from 
the marrow of the thigh, and while dying, at his re- 
quest, it was placed in his hands. With a smile on 
his handsome face he expired, July 13, 1864.

Mrs. Carter was much interested in genealogical work, was the 
author of the "Carter Genealogy," and had also done much val- 
uable work on other old families of Lancaster and Leominster. 
Her loss will be deeply felt by many who knew her only through 
her work, as well as by her personal friends. She leaves one son, 
Robert L. Carter of Leominster, and a step-son, Alfred F. Carter 
of Sherborn, Mass., who have the heartfelt sympathy of all in 
their deep bereavement. 



Rev. Andrew Dunn of Royalston, Mass., husband of Martha 
Ann Gerry 8 (5398), Vol. I, p. 61, died July 13, 1901, aged 88 years. 
He was born in Gardner, Mass., June 15, 1813, son of Vinal and 
Dolly (Whitney) Dunn. He was sixteen years of age when he 
was converted and united with the Baptist church in Weston, 
Mass. Very soon after he had the conviction that he was called 
of God to preach the Gospel. So fully persuaded was he that 
this was his duty, that he began to study and prepare himself for 
his life work under the instruction of Judge Mellen of Wayland, 
and his pastor, Rev. T. R. Ropes. Having to depend on his own 
resources, he taught school to secure a competency to defray his 
expenses until he was well fitted to enter Newton Theological 
Seminary, Sept., 1839. He was licensed to preach by the church 
in Weston, Sept. 11, 183S ; graduated from Newton in 1842 ; was 
called to the Baptist church in Winchendon, Mass., where he was 
ordained Aug. 20, 1842, remaining ten years. Subsequently he 
served the following churches : Holden, North Bridgewater, 
Weymouth, Chatham, Still River, Harvard, East Gloucester, 
East Haverhill, Rowell, West Newbury and East Brookfield, 
Mass., also in Fitzwilliam, N. H. His last pastorate was in Roy- 
alston, where he served the church for five years ; the last ten 
years of his life he was unable to preach. Mr. Dunn married 
first Sophia L. Williams of Newton. He married second, June 
10, 1890, Mrs. Martha A. (Gerry) Wheeler of Royalston, who 
cheered his declining years and faithfully cared for him in his last 
illness. This faithful servant of the Lord served his Redeemer 
for a half century in actual labor in the ministry ; was a man of 
deep conviction, a devout, earnest, spiritual minded and enthusi- 
astic preacher of the Gospel. Besides his wife, one of his two 
sons survive him.

Rev. GEORGE Sumner Ball 7 (18818), Vol. II, p. 31, died in 
Upton, Mass., Sept. 5, 1902. He was born in Leominster, Mass., 
May 22, 1822, son of Micah and Rachel (Lincoln) Ball ; his father 
was a deputy sheriff and also ran the first stage line from Wor- 
cester to Fitchburg, Mass. His early life was one of hard work 
and many privations. Aside from the common school he received 
but little education. At the age of sixteen he bought his time 
and by hard personal effort succeeded in entering Meadville The- 
ological School, where he graduated in 1847, with the first class 
ever sent out from that institution ; and was ordained at Ware, 
Mass., Oct. 13, 1847. He remained there two years, then settled 
in Upton. Chaplain Ball was one of the most widely-known 
veterans of the Civil War. In the 21st regiment and again in 
the 36th, he proved himself to be the friend of the soldiers ; from 
Nov 28, 1861, at Annapolis, through the battlefields of Roanoke, 
Camden and Chantilly, he rendered notable service to his country. 
Besides his service in the army, he was in Plymouth two years, 
yet he always counted Upton as his home. His pastorate over 
the Unitarian parish at West Upton covered a period of more 
than forty years, having been regularly installed in February, 
1850. Mr. Ball was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention 
in 1853 ; in 1861 he was elected representative to the general 
court, came home from the army and was present at its organi- 
zation ; was re-elected in 1862, but resigned. In 1863 he served 
as Chaplain of the house, was a member of it in 1864 and 1866, 
and in 1867 was elected to the senate. He married, in Ware, 
June 18, 1848, Hannah B. Nourse of Bolton, Mass.; to them 
were born eight children ; of these, besides the mother, three 
daughters and two sons survive. The news that Chaplain Ball 
was mustered out occasioned sincere sorrow in Grand Army 
circles throughout the state ; he was in a regiment which made a 
glorious record, and part of the honor belonged to Upton's grand 
old man. 



G FORGE Albert Rowlandson (4864), Vol. I, p. 415, of Mt. 
Vernon, N. Y., died at Rye Beach, Long Island, N. Y., Aug. 15, 
1904. He was born in Mt. Vernon, Oct. 11, 1870, son of Oscar 
S. and Charlotte (Hopping) Rowlandson. He was a bookkeeper

in the home office of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, 
New York City. On Sunday he went to Rye Beach with sev- 
eral members of his family and having such a good time decided 
to stay until Monday night ; and on Monday afternoon while 
swimming about he started for the shore, but when in about four 
feet of water was seen to throw up his hands and, without a cry, 
sink under the surface. They immediately went to his rescue 
and recovered the body without any difficulty. A doctor was 
called but found that his efforts were useless, and said that he 
had evidently been killed from an attack of heart trouble, which 
it was known he was subject to. Mr. Rowlandson was one of 
the leading members of the 71st New York regiment at the out- 
break of the Spanish war. When the news of the declaration of 
war was received, he volunteered his services, which were ac- 
cepted ; and when the regiment left, on May 4, 1898, for Camp 
Black, Long Island, he was one of the men who marched down 
Fifth avenue in its ranks, and when at Tampa, Fla., he made 
many friends among the members of different regiments waiting 
there for transportation to the Island He took part in the bat- 
tles of San Juan Hill and El Caney, on July 23, or just before the 
fall of Santiago ; he was foraging with a party of nine men and 
was cut off from the American column by a band of Insurgents ; 
these men held a hill against an overwhelming force for eleven 
days. It was while thus defending the hill that he contracted 
yellow fever and he was reported missing from his command. In 
the meantime he had been sent north on one of the hospital ships 
and reached his home, where by careful nursing he recovered 
some degree of his former health. In the death of Mr. Rowland- 
son, is lost an only son and brother, also the last male member 
in the ninth generation of the descendants of Rev. Joseph and 
Mary (White) Rowlandson, his father now being the last to bear 
the name. 



Howard M. Lane, husband of Sarah B. Carter 8 (268), White 
Family Quarterly, Vol. II, p. 85, died in Leominster, Mass., Feb. 
8, 1904. He was born in Epping, N. H., Dec. 12, 1833, attended 
the common school in his native town and the Seminary at Tilton, 
N. H. Mr. Lane went to Leominster in 1851, and worked in the 
piano case manufacturing with his brother, J. C. Lane, and for 



128 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

Mr. Page of Fitchburg, Mass. In 1857 he succeeded his brother 
and continued the business successfully ; was also manager and 
treasurer of the gas light company until 1902, when he gave up 
active business. Mr. Lane was a man of strong convictions, and 
a shrewd business man ; his integrity was never for a moment 
questioned ; he took deep interest in municipal affairs and his ad- 
vice was often sought because of his wide range of knowledge 
and good judgment. He served the town as a member of the 
water board, moderator at town meetings, selectman, and in many 
other capacities, being representative in 1868, also special com- 
missioner of Worcester County. He was a republican, member 
of the Leominster club and the board of trade ; he was a kind 
friend in time of need. He married, Jan. 21, 1863, Sarah Brooks, 
daughter of James H. and Caroline (Carter) Carter, who died at 
Coronado Beach, California, while on a trip for her health, Feb. 
11, 1902. One daughter, Carrie C, wife of Edmund Munsie, 
survives him.

REPORT OF THE NINTH REUNION, 1904 

Whalom Park, Fitchburg, Mass., Aug. 24, 1904; the ninth 
annual reunion of the " Association of the Descendants of John 
White " of Salem, Wenham and Lancaster, was called to order 
by the President, John B. White of Kansas City, Mo., at 11:10 
A. M. Prayer was offered by Vice President John F. White of 
Somerville, Mass. The record of the meeting in Lancaster, in 
1903, was read by the secretary, and approved as read. 

Because of the absence of the treasurer, George A. White, 
Franklin Park, Mass., who is suffering from the effects of a 
broken limb, the treasurer's report was read by the assistant sec- 
retary as follows : —

This report showed a deficit of $29.42. The secretary ex- 
plained that $25.00 of this deficit was for Association badges that 
had been delivered since the meeting of 1903. After this ex- 
planation the Association voted to accept the report. 

Special Committees : The committee to ascertain if a favor- 
able reply would be given to the Petition to " The Cemetery Com- 
mittee of Lancaster," as adopted at the meeting of 1903, made 
their report by reading the letter received from the Committee. 
The chairman of the Committee, J. F. White of Somerville, 
prefaced the report with the statement that the writing of that 
letter was almost the last work clone by the Hon. Henry S. 
Nourse, and that in his death the '« Association of the Descend- 
ants of John White " lost the best friend that they had in the 
old town of Lancaster. The letter was as follows : 

South Lancaster, Mass., Nov. 1, 1903. 
Mr. John F. White, 

Assistant Secretary of the " Association of the Descendants of 
John White of Lancaster." 

Dear Sir : — 

The cemetery committee of Lancaster, Mass., at a regular 
monthly meeting this day held, considered your communication 
of October 28, ult., requesting permission u to set within the 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 3 

limits of the Old Cemetery a Memorial to our ancestors," and it 
was unanimously voted to grant the request. It is mutually un- 
derstood that the said Memorial in its location, material, style and 
inscription, must be subjeet to the approval of said Cemetery 
Committee. 

By order of the Cemetery Committee of Lancaster, 

HENRY S. NOURSE, 

Secretary. 

Report accepted by vote and ordered put upon the records. 
Remarks were made by President White, Mr. J. H. Leavitt of 
Waterloo, Iowa, Miss Myra L. White and others, as to the 
character of the proposed Memorial. It was finally voted, on 
motion of Mr. J. H. Leavitt, "That a committee be appointed by 
the chair to consider the matter, and if the condition of the 
treasury would warrant, to complete the work, otherwise to report 
at the next annual meeting." Then the chair appointed as that 
committee : 

John F. White, Somerville. 
George A. White, Franklin Park. 
Charles S. Houghton, Leominster. 
Miss Myra L. White, Haverhill. 

Good of the Association : 

Mr. Horace White of Richville, N. Y., mildly criticized 
the methed of notification of the time and place of the 
meeting, and urged that a more extended notice be given next 
year, even to the sending of individual notices. Others spoke on 
the same general line. The secretary then took the floor and 
spoke energetically in her own defense, calling attention to the 
vast amount of work that she had willingly done in the years past 
for the Association, in the putting out of the twenty-five hundred 
or more notices to individuals and families, in the effort to obtain 
a large attendance at the annual gathering. That the results had 
not been in any measure commensurate to the labor involved, 
either to the Association or to herself in the effort to sell the 
first and second volumes of her book. That she had decided that 
she could no longer give so much of her time with so little result. 
That she was doing genealogical work for others now to pay 



4 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

necessary expenses. And urging that the members of the fam- 
ilies, near and far, would give larger support to the Quarterly, 
that her work on that line might be carried forward, or that must 
be abandoned. Mr. Horace White disclaimed any thought to add 
to the already arduous labor of the secretary, but hoped that some 
measure would be taken to bring together a larger number of the 
family. Several spoke at some length upon the matter, the prepon- 
derance of sentiment being in favor of notices sent to members. 
President White said if the secretary would furnish him with the 
mail list, that he would see that such notice was duly made. It 
was regularly voted that card notices be sent next year. Dinner 
having been announced, recess was ordered until 2 P. M. 

At the appointed hour the President called the Association to 
order and announced that the first number on the after dinner 
program would be a vocal selection by Mrs. Sara M. Haley of 
South Lee, N. H. The selection rendered by Mrs. Haley was 
very cordially received, as was evidenced by the abundance of 
applause. 

Mr. J. H. Leavitt moved that from this date the annual dues 
be one dollar for men and fifty cents for women. Considerable 
discussion followed this motion, but when the vote was taken the 
motion was declared carried. Then the chair requested that the 
Register be read. It was brought forward to the table and read 
by the assistant secretary. 

At this time President White left the chair and taking the 
floor made a very strong, earnest appeal for financial aid for Miss 
Myra White's present need, and equally strong appeal for aid 
along the line of the printing of the third volume and ending his 
remark with this magnificent offer: That he would pay the en- 
tire expense of printing the third volume. That he would pre- 
sent to her two hundred copies. That he would keep for himself 
fifty copies, on which he proposed later to make some money. 
That he would hold for her the other two hundred and fifty copies 
subject to her order, and that the cost to her should be only the 
actual cost to him of each book. Prolonged applause followed 
the President's earnest speech. The President, having resumed 
the chair, requested the assistant secretary to pass through the 
audience and receive such subscription as the friends were ready 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 5 

to make for the benefit of Miss White and also subscription for 
the third volume. 

The report showed : 
Cash subscriptions . . . . . . . $70 00 

Two subscriptions for third volume . . . . 10 00 

Miss Myra thanked the friends for their response to the appeal 
in a few well chosen words. 

Mr. Horace White, with his kindly face beaming with good 
will for the Association, moved the nomination of the present 
board of officers. Mr. J. H. Leavitt seconded the nomination 
and put the vote. The vote was unanimously in favor and Mr. 
Leavitt declared the following officers duly elected : 

President — John B. White, Kansas City, Mo. 
Vice Pres. — George S. Houghton, Reading, Mass. 
Vice Pres. — Joseph H. White, Antwerp, N. Y. 
Vice Pres. — Lucius A. Warner, Beacon Falls, Ct. 
Vice Pres. — Hon. John W. Kimball, Fitchburg, Mass. 
Vice Pres. — John F. White, Somerville, Mass. 
Vice Pres. — Mrs. Sarah A. Morrison, Tidioute, Pa. 
Vice Pres. — Henry R. Smith, Leominster, Mass. 
Vice Pres. — Henry D. White, Grand Valley, Pa. 
Vice Pres. — Charles H. White, Grandin, Mo. 
Vice Pres. — Milo S. Harrington, Westminster, Mass. 
Treasurer — George A. White, Franklin Park, Mass. 
Secretary — Miss Myra L. White, Haverhill, Mass. 

Mr. Horace White stated that on a recent visit to the "Old 
Abbey " in Leominster, the occupant suggested that the "Whites " 
meet there at some time in the future, so Mr. White moved that 
the next meeting be at the "Old Abbey". The motion was de- 
clared carried. Miss Myra White suggested that it would be 
especially appropriate to have an " historical address " onjosiah 
White 's Te?i Sons. President White appointed John F. White 
of Somerville to prepare the address, and Miss Myra volunteered 
to furnish the necessary data. It was voted that the date of the 
meeting be left with the executive committee. No further busi- 
ness being offered for the consideration of the meeting, President

MARY Ann Lincoln 8 (43a) b. in Leominster, Mass., Aug. 3, 
1806 ; and now living in the home of her birth. I am indebted 
to the Leominster Enterprise for the following interesting sketch 
of Miss Lincoln : — 

" Passing the allotted age of threescore and ten as swiftly as 
time itself, Miss Mary Ann Lincoln has since gathered birthdays 
like a cluster of sweet-smelling flowers. Today she attains the 
remarkable age of 98, making her the oldest person in town, old- 
est in years and oldest in nativity, for she was born and has since 
lived in the little old-fashioned house on Union street where this 
afternoon many friends, neighbors and acquaintances dropped in 
to extend their cheer and compliments. 

The house was built in 1774 by her grandfather, William Lin- 
coln. The architecture represents a custom long since obsolete, 
the posting being low, the windows small and the chimney large. 
Miss Lincoln is surrounded by many that to her are priceless 



24 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

heirlooms of her ancestry which keep her in touch with memories 
which are both joyful and sad. 

Miss Lincoln's father began life in the old house when he was 
5 years old. Her parents were married in the room in which she 
was born, which is in the southeast corner of the house. In the 
hallway is grandfather's clock, which chronicled the hour of these 
two important events. The marriage took place in 1797 ; the 
birth occurred Aug. 3, 1806, when Leominster was nothing more 
than a hamlet. 

Miss Lincoln says she does not know how old the clock is. 
She associates it with her infancy and in childhood frequently 
heard her parents allude to it as dating back to their own younger 
days. It is of very ancient style, made of wood and run by 
weights These are lifted when the clock is wound, the cords to 
which they are attached revolving backwards on the roll by means 
of a spring which then winds the cord. 

In responding to questions as to her personal life, Miss Lincoln 
declared with a smile that ' she could not see why anything pub- 
lished about her could be of especial public interest. To be sure, 
she had lived almost a century, but there are others equally old.' 
She has not followed any particular rule of living to produce 
longevity. 

Until recent years Miss Lincoln has passed her entire time at 
the old homestead. Lately, however, she has spent the winter 
with a nephew, George Lincoln, who lives close by. She does 
this because it is difficult to heat the old house in the good old- 
fashioned way that is now considered insufficient for a woman 98 
years old. 

Miss Lincoln is by no means a recluse ; neither is she yet 
'laid on the shelf.' She was among the most interested persons 
present at the recent dedication- of the new Unitarian church, of 
which society she is a member, and in which she was active in 
her younger clays. She has listened to all the ministers of the 
church except the first one, Rev. John Rogers. 

Her story of the inconveniences and hardships attending divine 
worship 75 years ago is peculiarly interesting. The degree of 
warmth depended upon the weather. Miss Lincoln is the only 
living charter member of the Ladies' Benevolent society con- 
nected with the church. She was for years a teacher in the Sun- 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 25 

day school, many of her scholars now being gray-haired men and 
women. 

She remembers the old Unitarian church that once stood on 
the common, in front of where now is the drug store of Charles 
F. Nixon. She has a wide acquaintance, and says she believes 
there is not another person in Leominster who has so many 
nephews and nieces as she, for nearly everybody who knows her 
calls her Aunt Mary Ann, and she likes it, too. 

Miss Lincoln recollects when she went to a school in a little 
old school house on Franklin street, known as No. 8, and to her 
home was more than a mile, she recalls that she passed only two 
houses on the road, where on the same ground there are now 
more than 100 nice houses. 

She was one of a family of six children, three boys and three 
girls, and is the last one of the family, having lived a score of 
years longer than any of her brothers and sisters. Miss Lincoln 
has all of her mental faculties in remarkable condition, and can 
now write as good a letter as most of the young people of the 
present generation. 

Miss Lincoln feels that it is an honor to say that she is the old- 
est person in Leominster, and was born in the house in which 
she has passed so many years. 

She keeps busy kniting, while she pays considerable attention 
to reading and goes out driving frequently. She greatly enjoys 
going about and calling upon the companions of her younger days. 
She talks very interestingly of early Leominster when in a remin- 
iscent mood, for she has seen the town grow from a few hundred 
inhabitants to having a population exceeding 15,000. 

Miss Lincoln bids fair to live to be 100. Her health is good 
and she lives a contented life at the old home, where she receives 
her friends with a charm and grace which makes them feel that 
they are welcome, indeed."

OBITUARY. 

JONATHAN Grout SheparcP (8273), p. 716, Vol I. "Descend- 
ants of John White", died in South Deerfield, Mass., Oct. 12, 
1904, aged 83 years. Mr. Shepard was born in Buckland, Mass., 
Aug. 18, 1821; married in 1850, Theta Phila Scott of Phelps, N.Y. 
He was for many years an overseer in a cotton mill in Chicopee, 
Mass., but later living upon a farm. Mrs. Shepard died Feb., 1899. 



Mrs. ANNA Eliza (Shepard) Page (8276), p. 706, Vol. I., died in 
South Deerfield, Mass., Apr. 30, 1904. Mrs. Page was born in 
Buckland, Mass., May 20, 1829; she married George S. Page, who 
died in 1898. 



Andrew Lucian Houghton Fitch, husband of Abbie F. Wheeler 8 
(9042), p. 18, Vol. II., died in Maplewood, Mo., Nov. 2, 1904, at 
the home of his daughter, Mrs. John Craig. Mr. Fitch was born 
in Lancaster, Mass., Jan. 28, 1837, son of George and Sophronia 
Willard (Houghton) Fitch; he married (1) Apr. 29, 1860, Abbie 
F. Wheeler; they lived in Sterling, Mass., where she died Mar. 21, 
1893. He married (2) Sept. 19, 1894, Minnie G. dau. of Langs- 
ford 8 and Elvira (Everett) Harrington (5605), p. 482, Vol. I.,) of 
Princeton, Mass. He leaves beside his wife, three children, Nel- 
lie E., wife of Fred W. Kendall of Sterling, Caroline L., wife of 
John Craig of Maplewood, and George A. Fitch of Sterling. 



Horace White 8 (7709), p. 654, Vol. I., died at his home in Rich- 
ville, town of Dekalb, N Y., Nov. 18, 1904. Mr. White 
was born in Dekalb, June 29, 1828; married Mar. 6, 1850, Clarissa 
P. Lake, born July 16, 1830; she died in Richville, Apr. 28, 1902. 
He was educated in the district schools of Dekalb and the Wes- 
lyan Seminary of Gouverneur, N.Y.; most of his life was spent 
upon the farm where he died, which is now occupied by his young- 
est son and his family; and his home life was ideal. Mr. and Mrs. 
White were possessed of the true secret of hospitality and under- 
stood making guests feel they were truly welcome, and no one 
who shared their home, where love seemed the ruling power, could 
forget the feeling of true rest it gave. 

Although advanced in years no one thought of Mr. White as 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 31 

old. Few of his age had so many friends among the young peo- 
ple. His life was not only long but very happy. He found his 
happiness in doing good to others. Mr. White was a member of 
the Association of the "Descendants of John White;" it is but a 
few months since he met with us and it seems sad indeed that we 
shall never more see his beaming face or listen to bis pleasant 
voice; those who heard him will never forget the vigor and spirit 
with which he recited those inspiring words, "How can we lift 
them up." His character was beautiful, he never allowed an un- 
kind word to pass his lips and all who knew him were his friends. 
Unselfishness was a part of his nature and wherever he went was 
sunshine and good will; his own happiness was found in planning 
the happiness of others. He loved to hear words of praise, not 
words of censure. His warm and gentle nature, his cheerfulness, 
generosity and devotion to duty endeared him to a host of friends 
who will long cherish his memory. Well may it be said of him 
as has been said of others, "If everyone to whom he has done a 
kind act should lay a rose upon his bier, he would sleep tonight un- 
der a wilderness of flowers." Mr. White had a long and honor- 
able history in masonry for twenty-five years ; he was the mas- 
ter mason of Richville lodge, and several years ago he was the 
district deputy master for the district. In Dec 1866, he joined 
the St. Lawrence Commandry at Canton, N.Y., and in 1903 he 
joined the Scottish Rites at Rochester Consistory. He was a 
32nd degree mason and if he had lived until December he would 
have been crowned with the highest degree in masonry. The 
committal charge at the grave was impressively spoken by J. 
Hungerford Smith of Rochester when the body was consigned to 
its final resting place. This honor was given Mr. Smith because 
of his life long and intimate friendship with the deceased. Mr. 
White had made his father a master mason and all of his five sons 
and had been invited to bestow the master's degree upon Mr. 
Smith's son in December. Mr. White is survived by two sons, 
J. Stuart White, a lumber man of Omaha, Neb., and Chapman V. 
White of Richville, and three granddaughters. 



PHINEAS Dodge 8 (2669), p. 225, Volume I, died at his home 
in Millwood, Rowley, Mass., Dec. 4, 1904, aged nearly 98 years. 



32 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

He was the son of Solomon and Betsey (Pickard) Dodge, born in 
Rowley, Feb. 26, 1807; married in Georgetown, Mass., Dec. 22, 
1829, Sophia, dau. of Jeremy and Eunice (Stickney) Chaplain, 
born in Rowley, Feb. 28, 1809. They lived together nearly sixty 
years, she dying Dec. 26, 1888. Mr. Dodge was a farmer and 
miller, he and his sons owning an old fashioned saw mill which 
has been in the family more than one hundred years, being used 
for sawing ship timber. He was a man of great strength and 
energy; a high sense of honor, of independant mind and marked 
kindness to his neighbors. In his death Rowley loses her oldest 
citizen. He leaves two sons, Ignatius S. Dodge of Georgetown, 
and P. Alphonso Dodge of Rowley, and one daughter, Betsie P. 
Dodge, who cared for her father in his declining years.

THOMAS H. PUTNAM 



White Family Quarterly. 



VOLUME III. Aprtl, 1905. NUMBER II 



"The Lord is good: a stronghold in the day of trouble. 



THOMAS M. PUTNAM. 

Thomas M. Putnam, husband of Eunice L. (Cram 8 ) Putnam 
(4281) Vol. I, p. 373, died at his home in Dan vers, Mass., June 
9, 1897. He was born in Danvers, " Putnamville ", Sept 15, 
1817, son of Samuel and Mary (Herrick) Putnam, he was one of 
thirteen children ; nine of whom lived to middle life and five 
passed the allotted age of man. He received his education in 
the schools of his native town and the academy in Pembroke, 
N. H. In early manhood he worked first in his father's shoe 
factory, later for his uncle Moses ; Moses and Samuel Putnam 
being pioneers in this branch of industry in Essex county. 
Afterward he was in business for himself ; first having a leather 
store in Boston, later he manufactured shoes in his father's old 
factory in Putnamville for some years. In 1861 he removed to 
Danvers Plains, and in '63 he moved to his home on Maple street 
where he died. For some years, after leaving Putnamville, he 
was in the produce business, later a dealer in nursery stock, but 
for several years before his death he had not been in any regular 
business. 

He married Sept. 17, 1843, Mrs. Eunice L. (Cram) Perkins of 
Hampton Falls, N H., with whom he lived nearly 54 years. 
Amid all the changing scenes of their married life, its many 
vicissitudes of joy and sorrow, their love and devotion to each 
other never swerved, their faith and trust in each other never 
wavered; even during the last few months of increasing feeble- 



34 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

ness when heart and flesh failed him, his wife had power to 
soothe, and influence to control as no one else could. 

Five children were born to them, two boys died in infancy and 
two daughters, Mrs. Flora A. Foster of Peabody, Mass., and 
Miss S. Agnes Putnam, who has always lived at home, the stay 
and comfort of her parents declining years; a son, Webster F. 
Putnam of Dan vers, two grand children, Marion H . and Webster 
F. Putnam, Jr., and his invalid widow survive him. His brother, 
Henry, who has always resided on the old homestead in Putnam- 
ville, is the last surviving member of that large family circle. 

Mr. Putnam had been a consistent, exemplary member of the 
Maple Street Congregational Church for about thirty years He 
was very regular in his attendance at church and Sunday school 
until his health failed, especially at Sunday school in which he 
retained his interest in a marked degree, often going an entire 
year without missing a Sunday. 

He was a man of strict integrity, honest almost to a fault, a 
hard worker, spending few idle minutes ; apt in the use of tools, 
doing many a job of carpenter work in a manner creditable to a 
trained workman. When a young man, he built a large and 
pretty summer house in his father's garden at the old homestead ; 
and through summer heat and winter storms it stood until a short 
time ago. 

He possessed a fund of dry wit and humour, was something of 
a mimic and generally had a good story to tell," fitted to the occa- 
sion. He was fond of music, had a good bass voice, and sang in 
the church choir for years. He was a lover of pets, and ex- 
tremely fond of flowers ; when dealing in nursery stock it was 
his delight to procure and cultivate rare plants and shrubs. 

For the last two years he had been in failing health and more 
especially for the last two months, his sickness was very distress- 
ing in every way, but at the last the end was most peaceful. 



Mrs. EUNICE L. Cram* Putnam (4281), Vol. I., p. 373, 
widow of the late Thomas M. Putnam, died at her home on 
Maple street, Danvers, Mass., Jan. 3, 1905, aged nearly ninety 




MRS. THOflAS M. PUTNAM 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 35 

years. She was born in Hampton Falls, N. H., Mar. 8, 1815, 
daughter of Benjamin and Rebecca Fletcher (White 7 ) Cram (4227) 
p. 365, Vol. I, "Descendants of John White." She was one of 
six children, a delicate child, the weak one of the flock who was 
not expected to reach womanhood ; yet she was the last to go 
home, outliving all of her brothers and sisters. But her health 
was never good, she was not strong, though she knew how to ex- 
pend her strength so well that she accomplished more than many 
in good health. For the last fifteen years she was an invalid, 
giving up the care of her home to her daughter, Agnes. Several 
times during the years she had a long serious illness, going to 
death's very door, then she would rally and be comparatively 
comfortable again ; she had great recuperative powers, a strong 
will and a desire to live, a daughter, Agnes, who — as her pastor 
aptly expressed it was for years hands, feet, eyes and almost 
breath to that mother ; she had a son, who procured for her every 
comfort and many a luxury ; a doctor, who was not only a skilled 
physician, but a valued friend, so she had many helps to prolong 
life. 

She married Sept. 17, 1843, Thomas Meady Putnam of Dan- 
vers, with whom she lived nearly 54 years. Their married life 
was a very happy one, trouble and sorrow came to them, sickness, 
death, misfortune of various kind, but through all life's changing 
scenes, their love and trust in each other was never broken, there 
never was a shadow between them, perfect faith and confidence 
in each other remained always theirs. 

When the husband and father went home, after a short, severe 
illness, it was feared that the invalid wife would not long survive 
him ; but she rallied from the shock, as it did not seem possible 
that she could, and lived seven years and a half without him. 
Mrs. Putnam had five children, two sons died in infancy, two 
daughters, Mrs. Flora A. Foster and Miss S. Agnes Putnam, a 
son, Webster F. Putnam and four grandchildren, a girl and three 
boys survive her. All her other near relatives have passed away. 

She was a most devoted wife and mother, her husband and 
children were her constant thought and care, to make home 
happy and comfortable her earnest endeavor, she was most un- 
selfish and self-sacrificing:. 



36 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

She had a great head for planning, much executive ability, 
would have made a good business man, knew how to spend 
money so advantageously that she could make one dollar do the 
work of two. She was very skilled with her needle, such dainty 
stitches and such a rapid sewer one seldom sees. The winter the 
eldest daughter was attending a commercial school in Boston, 
she made her a pretty dress, a dark plum colored skirt almost 
black, trimmed with a wide scarlet fold, a plum colored vest, a 
little cut-away scarlet jacket braided with black, as pretty and 
dainty a costume as any girl could wish. It was the girl's favor- 
ite dress ; she went by the name of " Red-jacket " at the school 
all that winter. 

This daughter was six and a half years older than her sister, her 
mother always made a companion of her, they were more like 
sisters than mother and daughter. As she grew to womanhood 
she had gentlemen friends and several correspondents, she always 
read the letters to her mother, and her answers also, and her 
mother seemed to enjoy the correspondence as much as the 
daughter. If more daughters would make confidants of their 
mothers fewer would go wrong, and if more mothers were like 
this one, the daughters would enjoy telling their plans and inter- 
est to them. 

Mrs. Putnam had a firm religious faith, no matter how dark the 
day, how thorny the path, she never lost trust in her Father's 
love and care ; she would always see some bright spot. She was 
a very helpful person in time of trouble, with a most humble es- 
timate of her own merits. When for many years she was not 
able to attend church, her son's prayers were one of her greatest 
enjoyments ; he always came and prayed with her every Sunday 
afternoon. She had a roll of Scripture text which gave her great 
pleasure, a page for every day ; no matter if she knew many of 
them, when the roll was worn and needed replacing she was very 
particular to have one just like the old one. 

Into the quiet of her life came a new joy, her son married Miss 
Meldran of Manchester, Mass., and the new daughter was very 
dear to her, quite as dear as her own. "A man's wife makes or 
mars him." Before his marriage her son was devoted to his 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 37 

parents, a kind and loving brother, his wife was in every sense a 
help and incentive to every worthy motive, every noble purpose, so 
that he was more kind and thoughtful to his own people than ever 
before. After a time the grandchildren came one after another, 
first a little girl, then three boys, and every child was a new de- 
light to grandmother. 

Mrs. Putnam was always doing little kind acts, planning 
little surprises that man)' would not tnink of — for instance: 
The oldest daughter married a sea captain, he made several voy- 
ages without her, the 17th of August, 1874, she sailed from New 
York with him for Callio, South America, a long voyage around 
Cape Horn. Picture to yourself a gallant bark on the wide ocean, 
hundreds of miles from home, and wind and wave every minute 
bearing her farther away. The young wife is busy with her sew- 
ing this morning, she is happy beyond expression for she is with 
her husband ; but, as she works, she is thinking of the dear ones 
at home, loving them as never before, counting the weeks and 
months that must pass before she can hear from them. As she 
takes the last thread of cotton from the ball, she sees that the 
paper on which it was wound has writing on it. How eagerly 
she unfolds, devours the words, a loving message from mother. 
How the glad tears come ! how the love goes out to that mother 
so far away ! and how hard it is to keep from unwinding all the 
cotton, and looking into the boxes of buttons and the like to find 
the other little notes she is so sure are hidden there. But she 
has had her li word " for today, she will wait, some other day she 
will need one more. She loved all pretty dainty things, was ex- 
tremely fond of flowers, when she was able to be out she always 
had a pretty garden in the summer and house plants in winter ; 
she had great success with her flowers, one of her daughters said, 
" That if mother put a stick in the ground it would grow." 

Her last sickness was a long and painful one, stricken with 
paralysis the 16th of May, 1903, she lived nearly twenty months, 
a patient sufferer. The shock appeared slight, but she never 
spoke after it, never left her bed, only as she was moved to an- 
other to rest her and change her position. She had to be fed and 
tended like a baby all these weary months, but her devoted 



38 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

daughter, Agnes, gave her the most faithful service, the most 
tender care. She understood what was said to her until the last 
few weeks of her life, would nod her head in assent, or shake in 
dissent, sometimes when she was comfortable she would try to 
smile on the doctor or her pastor when they called to see her, 
her own sweet, sunny smile. Sometimes she seemed glad to see 
the little children ; the last few weeks of her life she was so 
feeble that she did not notice anything, and at the very last she 
just fell asleep — the sleep that knows no awakening. She has 
gone to her happy home, her home of peace and rest, her dear 
ones miss her, but they cannot mourn for her after the long, hard 
struggle, the battle is fought, the victory won. 



GRACE O. (WHITE) DOWNING. 

Mrs. Grace O. (White 8 ) Downing (4294), Vol. I, p. 376, died in 
Boston, Mass., Mar. 19, 1905. She was born in Center Harbor, 
N. H., Aug. 18, 1847, daughter of Timothy Fletcher 7 and Irene 
(Hodsdon) White. Her childhood was spent in Moultonboro, 
N. H., where she attended the district school. She married in 
Haverhill, Mass, Dec. 6, 1871, Charles H., son of Samuel and 
Eliza D. (Whitehouse) Downing. After a few years spent in 
Haverhill the family removed to Exeter, N. H., where two of the 
children were born. In a few years a return to Haverhill was 
made, where she resided until 1901, when she removed to Bos- 
ton. Mrs. Downing became a Christian in early life and was a 
member of the First Baptist Church of Haverhill. Although she 
was never strong and was often completely prostrated for months, 
she was devoted to her family and all their interests, and in time 
of their need seemed endowed with superhuman strength and en- 
durance. Although her burdens often seemed too heavy for her 
to bear, yet her faith in her Heavenly Father never failed. Her 
life was full of trial yet she fainted not. She was cheerful and 
hopeful to the last, planning for the comfort and happiness of her 
loved ones. She leaves, besides her husband, three children, 
Ernest Lyman Downing of Plaistow, N. H., Dr. Dana Fletcher 
Downing of West Newton, Mass , and Ethel Grace Downing of 
Boston ; two brothers, Charles 11. White of Wilton, N. H., and

C. Coates of Boston, Mrs. F. L. Moody of Manchester, N. H.,

South Framingham, Mass. A large circle of friends join the 
immediate family in mourning her loss. She lies buried beside 
her oldest daughter and youngest son in the family lot in Exeter. 
We have "seen a vision and have heard the song" of a beautiful 
life ; the vision has vanished and the song is stilled, yet the 
memory of them and of the blessed influences of that life is left 

" And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, 
Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the 
Lord from henceforth : Yea, saith the Spirit, 
that they may rest from their labours ; and 
their works do follow them."

years, and in speaking of his condition said he wished he had 
chosen a wife instead of a pipe, at the age of thirty ; and would 
if he were to live his life over, as he was tired of depending upon 
hired help. Mr. White was much interested in the history of 
his family and gave many facts and items of interest in connec- 
tion with the various branches living in his vicinity. He went to 
Whitingham intending to spend a few weeks, but the end came

Godgifu, a widow. The fame of Siward survives in the chron- 
icles and songs of Denmark. He erected a minster at Galmanho, 
near York, where he was buried. The minster was dedicated to 
St. Olaf of Norway, who was canonized in 1030. " When his end 
approached, the old fire blazed out in the aged warrior : he bade 
his attendants put his armor on him, and so, girt with harness 
and helmet, with his sword by his side, with his shield in his left 
hand and his battle axe in his right, the old Earl fared forth."

cestors, earls and kings, had his worst enemy on his own hearth- 
stone in the person of his wife who sought his destruction. 
Daily, in his last imprisonment, Waltheof repeated the whole 
Psalter, which he had learned by heart in his childhood ; and the 
months he remained in bonds were those of deep penitence. He 
was put to death June 15, 1016, by Wm. Conqueror, and was 
buried at Glastonbury finally. Waltheof was already Earl of 
Northampton and Huntington before he was Earl of Northum- 
berland.

Stephen, afterward K. Stephen, founded the Abbey of Furness, 
then covering 65 acres, as it is said when the lands of Michael 
le Fleming were exempted from the exactions of the Abbot of 
Furness, the lands of the Abbot nearly surrounding those of 
Michael. While John de Cancefield was Abbot, Fleming be- 
stowed on the Abbey the estate of Fordboc, or Fordbottle. 
Fleming was lord of manor of Aldingham, and when the barony 
of Egremont was divided, Wm. de Meschines granted to him the 
manors of Bechamet where their castle of Caernavon was, also 
Frissington, Waddington, Rotingdon, Waddicker and Arlockden. 
This castle of Caernavon was finally after several generations 
given to a younger son, and suffered to go to decay, being aban- 
doned as a residence. Michael had five sons, William, Richard,

mother, Margaret, sister to Sir Robt. Holland (and widow of 
Sir John Blackburn, by whom she had three daus., one of whom

Sherburne, dau, of Sir Robert of Stoneyhurst. Sir John's wife 
Katherine was nurse to Philippa, Queen of K. Ed. III.

the panic stricken Welsh fled to their fastnesses in the mountains. 
In the retreat the Earl of Douglas, who had led the Scottish con- 
tingent, fell from a cliff, when he was captured by Sir James 
Harrington ; a service for which he received from King Henry IV

NOTES ON THE ABOVE LINEAGES. 

" Hornby Castle, centuries ago, had attracted the eye of the 
Roman soldier, and coins and tessellated pavements discovered 
in various alterations of the castle prove that the value of its site 
strategic position was fully recognized even then. At Domes- 
day Surrey Hornby was classed with Mailing, Wennigetun as 
one manor, in which Ulf held nine carucates of land, and when 
the Conqueror came was held by Aleric whose gr. son Adam, son 
of Swain, had two daughters, Maud and Annabel. Maud m. Adam 
de Montbegon and the land of Hornby descended to Roger de 
Montbegon, his grandson who died 1225. In 1226, passed to a 
collateral relative, Henry de Montbegon, who in 1226 conveyed 
the manor of Hornby and castle to Hubert de Burgh, Chief Jus- 
tice of England, and the Chamberlain of Shakespear's K. 
John. He d. 1242, and his widow, Margaret, married in York 
Cathedral, and a Scottish princess, Countess of Kent, continued 
in its possession till she died 1259. Then another claimant 
appeared in the person of Elena de Longuevilliers, who said her 
husband, John de L. had been entitled to the estate, and she as 
his widow to one-third part as her dower, and at last her claim 
was successful, and toward the close of the reign of K. 11. II 
Hornby passed with Margaret, dau. of Sir John de Longuevilliers, 
to Geoffrey de Neville." (See Vol. 41, Historic Soc. Lancaster 
and Cheshire.) 

" Raby Castle owes its splendor to John de Neville who, in 1379, 
obtained leave to make a castle of his manor of Raby, and to em- 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 55 

battle it and castellate its towers. It is in Co. Durham about six 
miles from Barnard Castle on the east side of an extensive park. 
It has a very imposing effect and a striking idea of the magnifi- 
cence of feudal ages may be formed from its extent, its grandeur 
and well preserved state ; its foundation is a rocky eminence, and 
it is environed by an embrazured wall and parapet, enclosing 
about two acres. It is said to date even as far back as Canute. 
The entrance hall is uncommonly grand, its vastness never failing 
to strike the beholder with admiration. The roof is arched and 
supported on six pillars with capitals. Here visitors leave their 
carriages, which are admitted to the hall, and pass out on the 
opposite side through the inner area and covered way. At one 
end is a flight of steps leading to the presence chamber, music 
room and billiard rooms ; and over the hall is another spacious 
apartment, ninety feet in length, thirty-six in height and thirty- 
four in width. This was the room where the ancient baronial 
festivals were celebrated, and seven hundred knights who held of 
the Nevilles, are recorded to have been entertained here at one 
time. The walls are very thick, and the oven of the castle was 
converted into a wine cellar, the sides being divided into ten 
parts, each holding a hogshead of wine in bottles. The park, 
pleasure grounds and plantation correspond to the extent and 
dignity of the castle, one of its terraces being upwards of 2250 
feet, nearly half a mile long. This seat continued to be the 
grand residence of the Nevilles, till the reign of Q. Eliz. Charles 
Neville, sixth and last earl of Westmoreland, engaged in a weak 
conspiracy to dethrone the Queen, and his immense estates, 
about 1584, reverted to the Crown." (N. E. H. G. Register, 
Vol. II.) 

Sir Robert Harrington, oldest son of Sir John (8) 12th lineage 
m. Isabel, d. of Sir Nigell Loring, one of the original Knights of 
the Garter, and had a son John H., died s. p. Feb. 11, 1415, 
seized of Aldingham and the Advowson of Church of Aldingham, 
which he held by certain services to the Abbot and Convent of 
Furness Abbey, which right to these services had been stoutly 
denied and long contested by the Flemings, and which it had 
cost the Abbot ^15U0 to enforce, they long having been tenants 
of the Kin":, and not the Abbot. 



56 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

Sir William de Harrington, 2d son, succeeded his brother John, 
then ae. 26, and is by some believed to have built, or rebuilt 
Gleaston Castle, a mile and a half from Aldingham Church. He 
m. Elizabeth, oldest dau. co-heir of Tho. de Multou ; had only 
dau; Elizabeth. His widow married Lord Hastings. 

Elizabeth, heiress and dau. of Sir Wm. Harrington, m. Wm., 
Lord Bonville of Chuton Co., Chester, and had s. h. William, 
who took his mother's name. 

William, Lord Harrington, was slain at battle of Wakefield, 
Dec. 31, 1460 (together with his two cousins of the younger line, 
Sir Thomas Harrington of Hornby, and his oldest son, Sir John 
Harrington.) 

Cecilia, only child of Wm., Lord H., m. Thomas Grey, 1st 
Marquis Dorset, son of John, Lord Grey of Groley, whose widow 
Eliz. Wydville became Queen of K. Henry IV. The manors of 
Aldingham and Michelland which came from the earliest Flem- 
ings, passed to the Greys and on the attainder of Grey, Duke of 
Suffolk (father of Lady Jane Grey) passed to the Crown. 

" On the western borders of rocky Cumberlands, where the 
salt breezes sweep with invigorating freshness from across the 
tumbling waves, and the sandstone cliffs are washed by the rest- 
less sea, is the quaint little fishing village or port of Harrington 
or Haverington, as written in earlier times. It is situated mid- 
way between Workington and Whitehaven and in sight of the 
lofty head-lands that run far out into the deep, and under the 
shadow of which, more than twelve centuries ago, the saintly 
Beza and her sisterhood established their little oratory. Long 
before the reign of K. Ed. I, it had given name to a sturdy race 
of warriors, who through several generations played their parts 
in the most important affairs of the nation as well as the county, 
and bore themselves bravely on many a well fought field. These 
Harringtons of Harrington, Co. Cumberland and of the manors 
of Aldingham, Gleaston Castle, Wrayholme Tower, Hornby 
Castle, Farleton, Arnside, Witherslack and other places in Lan- 
cashire, were allied with the most powerful houses in the land, 
and yet there was but one Lord Harrington of the stock."

" Harrington stands on the River Wyre and was, at the Con- 
quest or soon after, given to Ivo de Taillebois, Baron of Kendal 
in Westmoreland, and the younger son of Count of Anjou." (From

1604, his baptism is not recorded, there being a break in the 
records from 1602 to 1610, but we find his name in his father's 
will in 1608. He m. in Halifax Parish, Apr. 11, 1629, Mary 
Gawkroger or Platts. They lived for a time in Sowerby, where 
five of their children were born, three of whom were brought to 
America, two buried at Sowerby. In 1638, he was living in the 
Island of Barbadoes, owning more than ten acres of land on the 
Island as proved by an old record recently found upon the Island. 
In 1640, he came to New England, settled for a time in Water- 
town, where he had large grants of land alotted to him. In 1643 
he associated himself with Thomas King and others, for the pur- 
pose of purchasing of Sholan, the Indian Sachem of the Nasha- 
way tribe of Indians, a tract of land for a township, which was to 
be ten miles long and eight in breadth, known as the " Nashaway 
plantation," afterwards, Lancaster, Mass., one of the original set- 
tlers and considered the founder. The town received its name 
May 18, 1633, the name it is said being given in honor of Mr. 
Prescott, it being the name of his native county in England. 
Mary, wife of John Prescott, appears to have been the dau. of 
James and Martha (Ainsworth) Gawkroger, m. Sept. 5, 1601, his 
will written 1625, a clothier of Sowerby, she was bapt. Mar. 15, 
1606-7, and granddaughter of James and Jenet (Fairbank) Gawk- 
roger or Platts, m. Dec. 2, 1571. The children of John and Mary 
bear the names of the children found in James Gawkroger Jr.'s 
will in many instances, as Martha, Sarah, Anne or Hannah and 
Lydia, the children, grand and great grandchildren of John Pres- 
cott will be given in the October Quarterly as far as the records 
can be obtained, with full dates.

Mrs. DOROTHY S. (Kimball 7 ) Bailey (15121), Vol. II, p. 491. 
died at her home in Fitchburg, Mass., Mar. 3, 1905. Mrs. Bailey 
was born in Fitchburg, Aug. 3, 1817, daughter of Ephraim and 
Dorothy (Sawyer 6 ) Kimball and granddaughter of Phineas Jr., 
and Mary (Prescott 5 ) Sawyer (712). She was married June 4, 



88 WHITE FAMILY QUARXERLY. 

1846, Ebenezer Foster, son of Ebenezer and Lucy (Goldsmith) 
Bailey, born in Westmoreland, N. H., Feb. 19, 1820. Mrs. 
Bailey was from early life a devoted Christian, a very efficient 
worker in the church and Sunday school, and for many years as- 
sisted in the service of song, she was active in the Woman's 
Christian Temperance Union and ready for every good word and 
work. Although Mr. and Mrs. Bailey were married nearly 59 
years, death had never before broken the family circle, she is 
survived by her husband, and by four children, Ebenezer, Harri- 
son, William Kimball Bailey and Miss Anna M. Bailey and a 
large circle of friends. 



Mrs. OLIVE Elizabeth (Childs 9 ) Edwards (29) p. 55, Vol. I, 
No. 2, " W r hite Family Quarterly," died at her home in Holyoke, 
Mass., Feb. 27, 1905. Mrs. Edwards was born in New Brain- 
tree, Mass., Dec. 1, 1872; daughter of Henry Hinckley and 
Martha A. (Howe 8 ) Childs, being the third in their family of 
eleven children and the first death in their family. She was mar- 
ried in Holyoke, June 13, 1895, to Charles Samuel, son of 
Samuel Finley and Adeline Fidelia (Gridley) Edwards, born in 
Southampton, Mass., Oct. 22, 1872. For a few years after their 
marriage they lived in Springfield, Mass., where they united with 
Christ Church and have since retained their membership, Mrs. 
Edwards was an active member and a former officer of the Rath- 
bone Sisters. She was a devoted wife and mother, a sweet 
Christian woman in every way, always of a sunny temperament, 
even after she had become a great sufferer. She is survived by 
her husband and three little children, Elizabeth Adeline, Roger 
Gerhart and Kingsley Edwards, also her father and mother, 
brothers and sisters, Mrs. B. V. Brooks of Greenwich Village, 
George E. of Wilbraham, Charles H. of New Haven, (Conn.), 
Willard T. of Petersham, Mrs. Harry Brainard of South Hadley 
Falls, and Robert, Fred, Arthur, Esther and Herman Childs with 
their mother in Holyoke, her father, who for a number of years 
conducted a successful business college in Holyoke is now in the 
West. Though we sympathize with all her friends in their be- 
reavement, yet our heart goes out to little Kingsley, who will 
never have even a memory of his loving mother to cherish, only 
as he receives it from the words of others.

"The Lord is good: a stronghold in the day of trouble." 

REPORT OF THE TENTH REUNION, 1905. 

Whalom Park, Fitchburg, Mass., Aug. 30, 1905 ; the tenth an- 
nual reunion of the "Association of the Descendants of John 
White of Wenham and Lancaster," was called to order in the 
pavilion at 10 45 a. m., with the President, John B. White of 
Kansas City, in the chair. The President in his opening remarks, 
made tender allusions to the missing ones whose faces had been 
so familiar in the reunions of the past, and of the grand reunion 
that shall by and by be held on the other side. 

Prayer was offered by Vice President, John F. White of Som- 
erville, Mass. The records of the last meeting of 1904 were read 
by the Assistant Secretary and approved as read. 

George A. White, Treasurer of the Association, presented the 
following report :

Report accepted. Treasurer White called the attention of the 
Association to the fact that many whose names are on the mem- 
bership roll are behind with the annual dues, and urged that some 
action should be taken, looking to a time limit when such names 
should be stricken from the roll. He suggested that a better 
system of bookkeeping should be adopted, and recommended a 
Card Index system. No motion was made, consequently no 
action on these suggestions 

President White took the floor and in a strong earnest speech 
deplored the lack of interest on the part of many, in fact a large 
portion of the Association. He called attention to the fact that 
about 3,000 circulars had been sent out by the Secretary in call- 
ing this meeting, and that less than two hundred people had re- 
sponded. He urged that more attention should be given to the 
vital points of the life of the Association ; that more personal 
work should be done by the individual members ; that methods 
should be adopted that would enthuse the thousands who belong 
to the family ; that not only our annual reunion should be better 
attended, but that there should be a larger and wide-spread inter- 
est in the magnificent Genealogical work that had been given to 
the family and to the world as the result of Miss Myra L. White's 
years of patient and persistent labor. George A. White of 
Franklin Park, Mass., moved that a committee of ten be appointed 
to arouse such enthusiasm before the next annual gathering. 
The motion was carried by a unanimous vote. The chair ap- 
pointed as that Committee : 

George A. White, Franklin Park, Mass. 
Mrs. E. M. Wilder, Leominster, Mass. 
Miss Fannie P. Gates, Leominster, Mass. 
John H. Leavitt, Waterloo, Iowa. 
Miss Edith L. Harrington, Westminster, Mass. 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 99 

Miss Ethel L. Wilder, Clinton, Mass. 
Mrs. Flora G. Macomber, Worcester, Mass. 
Joseph H. White, Antwerp, N. Y. 
Byron A. White, Parkersburg, W. Va. 
John F. White, Somerville, Mass. 

Opportunity was given for the collection of dues to which many 
responded . 

At 1 1.45 recess was taken until 1.30 p.m. for dinner. At 2 p.m. 
the Association was called to order by the President who an- 
nounced that the first order of business for the afternoon would 
be the reading of the " Historical Sketch " that was authorized by 
the meeting of 1904, Josiatis Ten Sons. John F. White of Som- 
erville, Mass., came forward and for thirty minutes was given 
the kindest attention by the audience present, while he read the 
paper prepared for the occasion which he had named, " The Old 
Abbey and Its First Occupant," which included Josiah's five 
daughters with the ten sons. A vote of thanks was tendered 
Mr. White after the reading. Moved and seconded the sketch 
be printed in the Quarterly. The President declared the motion 
carried. Mr. J. F. White suggested that such a vote was prob- 
ably subject to the condition that the Editor of the Quarterly 
could connect with the manuscript . 

The Committee on Memorial to be placed in the old cemetery 
at Lancaster reported as follows : 

To the officers and members of the Association of the Descendants 

of John White of Wenham and Lancaster : 

Your Committee, appointed to ascertain the style, costs, etc. 
of a suitable Memorial to be placed in the old Cemetery at Lan- 
caster, beg leave to make the following report. Your Committee 
after careful consideration, decided that a boulder of black or 
dark Granite, with a Bronze Tablet containing the inscription, 
set in the side, would be a suitable memorial. And that it might 
have form and comeliness, it seems advisable to make the dimen- 
sions 4 ft. 7 in. high, 3 ft. 4 in. wide and 1 ft. 3 in. thick, with 
bronze tablet 1 ft. 8 in. by 2 ft. 4 in. The specifications given to 
the various firms who have furnished estimates, included the 
above as to the stone with the bronze tablet securely set, said 



100 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 

tablet to bear inscription of about 164 letters and figures, the 
whole complete set in the Old Cemetery at Lancaster, on a suit- 
able foundation laid in cement (Portland cement preferred). On 
these specifications we have the following estimates : 

Chas. E. Chase, Agent, $180.00. 
Taynter Construction Co., $175.00. 
Milne & Chalmers, $155.00. 
W. D. Blanchard, $110.00. 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

John F. White, 
Geo. A. White, 
Myra L. White, 
Chas. S. Houghton, 

Committee. 

George A. White urged that the father of such a family ought 
to have a monument and that the family was large enough to get 
him one, and suggested that a Committee be appointed and 
$150.00 be raised to cover the cost of such a monument. It was 
moved that the Committee on Memorial be made permanent. 
Motion carried. It was moved that $150.00 be raised for the pur- 
pose of a Memorial. Carried. 

The President said that no time was so good for the purpose as 
now and that he would head the subscription with one tenth of 
the amount. Subscriptions were immediately taken and $59.00 
realized of which sum $37.50 was paid 

In the question of whether the Quarterly should be continued, 
Miss Myra L. White stated : that under the present conditions 
the Quarterly only paid about one-half the cost of the printing, 
and that for her own work, it was entirely without remuneration, 
that it had been necessary for her to do work outside of the 
White Family work, to pay her own living expenses. That it 
rested with the Association whether they would have the Quar- 
terly continued or not. 

The reason for the delay of the second and third numbers this 
year was that her whole, energy had been given to finish the 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY. 101 

third volume of the Genealogy, but that work is done. Now the 
question is, Do yoti want the Quai terly ? The remarks were ably- 
seconded by the President and George A. White. No action was 
taken. 

The next order of business was the election of officers. Presi- 
dent White stated that he was not a candidate for re-election. 
That he appreciated the honor of holding the office for five years, 
and asked the privilege of nominating his successor. He then 
placed in nomination for the office of President for the ensuing 
year, John F. White of Somerville, and the Association ratified 
the nomination by a unanimous vote. Mr. J. F. White thanked 
the Association for their kindly confidence, and stated that he 
could not accept the honor they would confer. Many words by 
many speakers were used bearing upon the question, and the 
final result was that Mr. John B. White, of Kansas City, con- 
sented to accept the office for another year followed by the 
hearty applause of all present. On motion the entire board of 
officers of last year was re-elected, as follows : 

President — John B. White, Kansas City, Mo. 
Vice Pres — George S. Houghton, Reading, Mass. 
Vice Pres. — Joseph H. White, Antwerp, N. Y. 
Vice Pres. — Lucius A. Warner, Beacon Falls Ct. 
Vice Pres. — Hon. John W. Kimball, Fitchburg, Mass. 
Vice Pres. — John F. White, Somerville, Mass. 
Vice Pres. — Mrs. Sarah A. Morrison, Tidioute, Pa. 
Vice Pres. — Henry R. Smith, Leominster, Mass. 
Vice Pres. -Henry D. White, Grand Valley, Pa. 
Vice Pres. — Charles H. White, Grandin, Mo. 
Vice Pres — Milo S. Harrington, Westminster, Mass. 
Treasurer — George A. White, Franklin Park, Mass. 
Secretary — Miss Myra L. White, Haverhill, Mass. 

Motion was made and seconded that the third Wednesday of 
August be the permanent day for the reunion in the future. 
Carried. 

It was moved that the place of the next meeting should be at 
Wenham. Carried. 

Voted to adjourn. 

John F. White, Assistant Secretary.

LAYING OF THE CORNER STONE OF THE 
DR. JOHN F. WHITE MEMORIAL SCHOOL. 

Youngsville, Pa., Oct. 11.— Tuesday, October 10, 1905, will 
long be remembered by the citizens of this town as a gala day 
and one that bore great good to the community. It was the day 
set for the laying of the corner stone of the J. B. White memorial 
school, erected in memory of Dr. J. F. White, son of the donor. 
For weeks past the matter has been one of discussion and the 
committee in charge have worked hard for the success of the 
event. Not an untoward event occurred to mar the exercises and 
the perfect weather, the warm air and the cloudless skies drew 
forth an immense crowd to participate. 

The school children, who will enjoy the gift, turned out in 
goodly numbers and marched to the site of the new school build- 
ing in perfect alignement. The many children marching with 
sprightly step called forth many remarks and in their simple, 
pretty way contributed much to the joyousness of the day. At 
the site of the new building space had been reserved for them 
and they filed into their place. The McKinnery cornet band fur- 
nished music and a children's chorus, given in the round, full 



148 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY 

tones of youthful singers, echoed and re-echoed in the hearts of 
the hearers long after t>e strains had died away. 

The meeting of the citizens was called to order by Dr. C. H. 
Jacobs, of the Youngsville school board, and in a few well chosen 
words he called attention to the splendid gift and to the place 
that its donor held in the hearts of the people of the community. 
Music was then given by the band and a superb chorus was ren- 
dered by the school children. 

The following articles were then placed in the box : " History 
of Dr. John Franklin White," in whose memory the school is be- 
ing built, and his photograph ; copy of the Youngsville paper 
containing an account of his death ; letters written by Dr White 
while in school and also shortly before his death ; copy of exer- 
cises of " yesterday " and list of names of borough officers and 
members of the band; coin of 1905; memorial letter by Mrs. 
Hemingway in memory of her brother: names of the architects 
and builders. 

Rev. Mr. Burns, of the Youngsville Methodist Episcopal 
church, then gave the address of the day, and in his splendid 
way spoke of the good that such a gift can do to the people of a 
town and of the influence that it will undoubtedly have upon the 
men and women of the future, the children of today. He also 
feelingly and touchingly referred to the young man in whose 
memory the noble pile is to be erected. Of his sturdy manhood 
and of the grief of his father at his death and of the desire to 
fittingly perpetuate his memory. The address was splendidly 
arranged and excellently given and from the hearts of the audi- 
ence there went forth a silent yet eloquent "Amen" to the 
speaker's words. 

Hon. J. B. White, the donor of the building, who had travelled 
all the way from Kansas City to be present at the exercises was 
then welcomed and gave a short but eminently fitting address. 
During his discourse he read a number of letters from persons in- 
terested in the welfare of Youngsville and her schools. Among 
them a memorial letter written by Emma Ruth White, and a let- 
ter from the President of Williams College, Williamstown, Mass., 
a close friend of Mr. White and his family. The President re- 
gretted his inability to be present and announced his intention of 




Dr. John^Franklin \\ hite 



WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY 149 

being present at the dedication. Mr. White, in his address, 
made mention of the fact that no credit or honor should be at- 
tached to himself as the result of his building the school, but 
that he did it simply because he wished to perpetuate good 
through the memory of his son, rather than erecting a marble 
shaft in the cemetery. 

It was a memorable day and the young people who witnessed 
it are now waiting most patiently for the new building to be com- 
pleted. 

The building is to be a fine one of brick and stone and will be 
erected at a cost of about $18,000 and will be finished with all 
the modern and up-to-date improvements. It occupies a com- 
manding position near the center of the town and will be an im- 
provement that will be at once permanent and beautiful. The 
plans have been carefully drawn with attention to the lighting 
and ventilation and the pupils of Youngsville will have a struc- 
ture second to none in the country when all is completed. 

The new building is to bear the name of " Dr. John F. White 
Memorial School." Mr. White has many friends in Youngsville, 
it being his old home.^ The programme was concluded by a selec- 
tion by the band, the placing of the corner stone, a song by the 
school "The Old Flag Never Touched the Ground," and the 
benediction by Rev. J. P. Burns. 



DOCTOR WHITE. 



John Franklin, son of John Barber and Arabel (Bowen) White 
was born in Tidioute, Pa., Nov. 9,1875 and the following year moved 
with his parents to Youngsville, Pa., then to " White's Mill" now 
Grandin, Mo., and later to Kansas City, Mo., where he graduated 
from the High school, took a two year's course in the Kansas City 
Medical College and in March, 1898, he graduated from the Missouri 
Medical College, St. Louis, Mo The following summer he took 
a course at the Wilkins Eye and Ear Infirmary, Philadelphia, Pa. 
He began the practice of medicine in Grandin, in the winter of 
189S. In the fall of 1899, he passed a creditable state examina- 
tion in Louisiana, settling in Fisher, Sabine Parish, Louisiana, 
where he was in charge of the hospital department of the " Lou- 



150 WHITE FAMILY QUARTERLY 

isiana Long Leaf Lumber Co., also a stockholder and director. 
Dr. White was appointed local surgeon for the " Kansas City, 
Pittsburg & Gulf R.R." at Fisher, and held the position until his 
death. 

On the morning of May 11, 1900, he was sitting on the steps 
of his office talking with a friend, with his gun across his knee, 
it slipped and the hammer, striking on the step, one barrel of the 
gun was discharged, wounding him in the breast and face. For 
a time it was thought that his wounds were doing well and he 
would soon regain his health ; but blood poisoning developing he 
d. at the St. Joseph's hospital, Kansas City, Mo., June 11, 1900. 

He was a young man of pure habits and most conscientious 
principles and was beloved by all, both in a professional and bus- 
iness way, winning many friends wherever he was known, and 
seemed to be destined for a useful life. He was laid at rest in 
the family lot at Youngsville.
